If you are an overseas visitor having a holiday in our beautiful part of the world while learning to fly, please visit our Overseas students page for budget accommodation near the airport.

Please note: Membership of Recreational Aviation Australia (RAA) is compulsory and costs $225 (paid after your 3rd lesson). Your Pilots Log Book and BAK theory book is essential and will cost $98 (total). You can view our syllabus and find out what materials are required, here. The RAA training syllabus is competency-based and while our course is designed to give you the best training in the minimum time, we cannot guarantee each student will reach flight test standard by 20 hours. GoFly is committed to achieving this aim and any flight time over 20 hours will receive an incredibly generous 15% discount on our normal hourly rate. 

*If you have purchased the online lessons and then become a full-time student of GoFly Aviation, we will deduct the cost of GoFly360 from your flying lessons. Just let us know when booking your flying lesson.

Exams and Theory

1. Pre Solo Exam

After a number of hours of tuition, your instructor will get you to sit your first exam which is your pre-solo exam. Passing this exam will allow you to fly the plane by yourself for the first time, which is often one of the most memorable experiences in your life.

2. Radio Exam

The radio exam is done at the same time as your pre-solo. It is designed to prove that you have sufficient knowledge to fly the airplane in a 'pilot in command' situtation.

3. AIR Legislation

About half way through your training you will complete the air legislation exam which highlights the rules of the air and whom has right of way, as well as various other aspects of Air Legislation.

4. BAK

BAK stands for Basic Aeronautical Knowledge and covers a wide range of aspects of flying i.e. Engines, Aerodynamics, Weather and much more.

5. Human Factors

The last exam is Human Factors and is an exam about the human element. For example, are you allowed to fly after scuba diving?

You can see our full syllabus here on our ‘Steps to becoming a Pilot’ page.

Frequently asked questions

Currently anyone at any age can start learning to fly. However in order to pilot the aircraft on your own, you must be 15 years old.


We follow the RAA Pilot Certificate course and extend this with helpful videos & books. We recommend the Aviation Theory Centre BAK/Human Factors book for study material.

All training at GoFly is based on competancy of the pilot and not on hours of tuition. A student will only receive their certificate or licence if they have passed all tests and the Instructor deems their flying to be satisfactory. Most students obtain their certificate within 20-25 hours.
