Recreational Pilots Licence – RPL

If you are completely new to flying, obtaining a Recreational Pilot Licence is the first step on your aviation journey. With a Recreational Pilot Licence, you’ll be able to fly on your own, or with friends and family, within a 25nm radius of the departure airport.

  • CASA mandated minimum flying training: 30 hours (25 hours dual, 5 hours command). As the Cirrus SR20/SR22 is a more complex aircraft, it can typically take an average of 50 hours to attain the safe standard when compared to a basic training aeroplane.
  • Entry requirements: Aviation Reference Number (ARN) and aviation class 1 or class 2 medical.
  • Students are required to pass the Recreational Pilot Licence theory exam and then a practical flight test with an examiner to attain the licence.
