Once getting your RPL, the next goal for you is to learn how to navigate. Holding a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) allows you to fly pretty much anywhere in Australia by day in visual metrological condition including controlled airspace. It’s exactly what you need for those weekend getaways that is too far to drive.


During training, you will plan and fly navigational flights with guidance of your instructor and also by yourself as the pilot in command. You will also need to complete study and exams in PPL theory which includes aerodynamic, aircraft systems, meteorology navigation, performance and air law.
