What’s a Recreational Pilot Certificate?

A Recreational Pilot Certificate, issued by Recreational Aviation Australia Ltd (RAAus), is a fantastic option for recreational pilots who don’t require the extra privileges of a Private Pilot License (PPL).

With an RPC, you can fly 1 or 2 seat recreation-class aircraft up to a total take-off weight of 600kgs.

After earning your RPC, you can fly within 25 nautical miles of your departure airfield. If you crave longer adventures, you can lift this limit by securing a cross-country endorsement.

Securing an RPC involves a written exam, a minimum of 20 flight training hours, and successfully passing the check ride. It’s a simplified yet rigorous path to experiencing the joy of flight.

A Recreational Pilot Certificate, issued by Recreational Aviation Australia Ltd (RAAus), is a fantastic option for recreational pilots who don’t require the extra privileges of a Private Pilot License (PPL). With an RPC, you can take to the skies in a 1 or 2 seat recreationally registered aircraft, limited to a total take-off weight of 600kgs.

Once you have earned your Recreational Pilot Certificate, you will be able to fly within 25 nautical miles of your departure aerodrome. If you wish to fly further, you will be able to remove this restriction by completing a cross country endorsement.

In order to earn the RPC, it requires the completion of a written knowledge test, at least 20 hours of in-aircraft flight training and passing the check ride.

Why is the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) perfect for young aviation enthusiasts?

Why is the Recreational Pilot Certficate perfect for young aviation enthusiasts?

The Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) is particularly suitable for 13 to 15-year-olds with a passion for aviation as it offers a lower age requirement for in-aircraft training (14 years) compared to a Private Pilot License (16 years).

The RPC can be obtained at just 15, two years earlier than a Private Pilot License. Begin with ground school and simulator training at 13, advance to in-aircraft training in Australia at 14, and earn your RPC by 15, expediting your journey towards a fulfilling and rewarding aviation career.

Securing an RPC at age 15 empowers young pilots to confidently progress to the Singapore Youth Flying Club’s Private Pilot License program, thereby further refining their aviation skills and enhancing their aviation resume.

Why is the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) perfect for adults?

Why is the Recreational Pilot Certficate perfect for adults?

The Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) is an optimal choice for adults, either as a cost-effective gateway to recreational flying or a stepping-stone to a commercial pilot career. Unlike a Private Pilot License, the RPC doesn’t demand a Class 2 or Class 3 medical certificate.

This flexible program allows you to transition from the RPC to a Private Pilot License and even a Commercial Pilot License. All the training hours acquired during the RPC are credited towards future licensing requirements. For instance, the training hours count towards the mandatory 40 hours for a Private Pilot License.

Aspiring commercial pilots can gain a significant cost advantage by starting with the RPC and then progressing to a Private Pilot License and subsequent ratings, making the journey to a Commercial Pilot License more affordable.
