Why not try a short Trial Instruction Flight (TIF), with you at the controls?


This will take you from your first lesson through to obtaining your Recreational Pilot License (RPL).


This license will enable you to travel almost anywhere in Australia and incorporates cross-country navigational training into what you have already learned.


The Commercial Pilot License is designed to consolidate what you’ve learnt during the PPL cross country phase but to a higher level.
