Initially, all pilots start out as a Student. Once you have successfully passed your Recreational Pilots Licence (RPL) you are granted the privilege to fly solo within the training area and carry passengers.

Minimum Requirements for RPL Price
20 Hours Dual Training @ $309 per hour $6,180
 5 Hours Solo Training  @ $199 per hour $995
Total $7,175
Average Student Cost for RPL Price
30-40 Hours Dual Training @ $309 per hour $9,270
 5 Hours Solo Training  @ $199 per hour $995

It is our experience that the average student pilot may take 30-50 hours training to attain the standard required by the training syllabus, but obviously this will depend upon each individual.
