 Step 1: Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC)

A Recreational Pilot Certificate takes between 25-35 hours of flying lessons and solo time. Flight training costs $365/hr AUD. Hong Kong and Singapore students can achieve their RPC for between $9,125-$12,000, depending on their competency and how quickly they progress to the next lesson. 

Students will receive:

  • access to their own flight record in our Flight Schedule Pro booking system
  • free briefings, free exams and exam markings
  • a PREMIUM subscription to GoFly Online, containing all ab initio flying lesson videos, theory books, practice exams (plus nav and passenger, RPL/PPL lessons, documentaries, dictionaries and lots more)

Students can enrol in any month of the year.  Our Recreational Pilot Certificate syllabus can be found here. Please also read the fine print at the bottom of this page.

 Step 2: Cross country endorsement

At the completion of your RPC, you can then choose to go on to do your cross country navigation endorsement for approximately $5,000. Syllabus information here:

 Step 3: Passenger endorsements

Before or after your navigation training, you can do your passenger endorsement for approximately $1,000 (to achieve the minimum of 5 hours of command time and 1 flight check with instructor) . Syllabus info here.

Terms and conditions

To confirm your enrolment at GoFly Aviation we will require a non-refundable deposit equivalent to 2 x $365 lessons ($730) to confirm your place. The deposit will be paid directly to GoFly Aviation. Bank details can be provided upon request. We will then prepare a 3-4 week schedule of training for you and begin to prepare for your arrival, including assisting with advice about travel and accommodation options. If you complete all your training, the $730 will be used to pay for your last two lessons. If you arrive and begin your training then withdraw before completing your course, and cancel all your future bookings, you will forfeit your deposit. 

All travel, accommodation and food will be paid for by the student. Students should fly into Brisbane Airport (until such time as international flights return to the Sunshine Coast Airport). 
Students can purchase a pilot log book ($35) from the GoFly Aviation office. After the 3rd flying lesson it is also compulsory to join Recreational Aviation Australia (RAAus), at a cost of around $300. 

Training will usually consist of 2 x two lessons per day for up to six days per week. Each lesson is made up of one hour  of flying and one hour on the ground (preflight and fuel the plane before flying then debrief and write notes, and pay after flying). Lessons can be taken either in the morning or in the afternoon on any day of the week. Once the student is training with GoFly, they can pay for their lessons at the end of each day’s training, by cash, debit or credit card (or they can deposit a bulk amount into our account or have us invoice them).
The maximum number of overseas students that we can manage training simultaneously at any time is two.  All training at GoFly is based on competency of the pilot and not on hours of tuition. A student will only receive their certificate or licence if they have passed all exams, flight tests and the Instructor deems their flying to be satisfactory. 

Overseas students are not eligible to purchase our Intro Package unless they intend to complete their entire RPC training with us.
