Private Pilots Licence (PPL)

Your Private Pilot Licence (PPL) will take your flying to a highly rewarding next phase. Holding a PPL expands your horizons as a pilot. Being an internationally recognised licence you not only can travel all around Australia without the restrictions of an RPL, but will be able to hire aircraft when overseas.

Now that you know how to fly, you’ll learn the art of navigation. You’ll learn how to flight plan and safely execute a day VFR cross country flight–factoring weather, airspace and many other components. We have a diverse fleet of aircraft for your PPL flight training. You can choose from our Cessna 172, Piper Warriors, or Archers.


What's involved?

  • Students already holding a RPL will require an additional 20 to 30 hours of flight training, including 5 hours of solo cross country navigation. 
  • The minimum number of hours required by regulation for the issue of a PPL is 40 hours, including 10 hours solo flying time. Please note that this may vary based on your level of competency.
  • Complete study and PPL Theory Exam. Modules include Meteorology, Navigation, Performance and Air Law. This is a 3 hour exam with a minimum grade of 70% required to pass. 
  • Undertake a flight test with a CASA Approved Testing Officer once the theory exam has been passed.


We Also Offer PPL Theory Ground School
