Private Pilot Licence

Flight Options | Commercial Pilots Licence Courses Commercial Pilot Training

A Private Pilot Licence (PPL) allows you to fly an aircraft on your own, anywhere in Australia, without needing prior authorization from an instructor.

You can also legally share the aircraft hiring cost with your passengers, however you cannot fly for hire or reward unless you have a commercial pilot licence.

Prior to commencing a PPL course you must pass a class 2 medical exam with a designated aviation medical examiner and hold or be eligible to hold an aviation security identification card (ASIC).

A Private Pilot Licence is broken down into three main modules:

Module 1: First Solo

Module 2: General Flying Progress Test

Module 3: Private Pilot Licence
