Recreational Pilot Certification

A Recreational Pilots Certificate is your introduction to the world of Aviation!

A RPC will allow you to pilot  an approved single-engine light sport aircraft, with a maximum take off weight of 600kg, within 25 miles of your home aerodrome. Once you have obtained your pilot certificate and have completed 10 hours of solo flying post training, you will be able to sit a Passenger Endorsement Flight test and take you friends and family for an exhilarating flight.

The Recreational Pilots Certificate is a great start to your aviation career. Once you have this under your belt, you are able to complete a Navigation or Controlled Airspace endorsement.
