How do I get a Private Pilot Licence PPL? What can I do with it?

You must be at least 17 years old to get your Private Pilot Licence (PPL). You also need to do the following for the category rating you want to get with your PPL:

  • Hold an RPL or you have done an integrated RPL training course;
  • Pass a PPL theory exam;
  • Meet the minimum aeronautical experience requirements;
  • Pass a PPL flight test

With the PPL, you will be licensed to fly as Pilot in Command and conduct navigational flights throughout Australia in any CASA registered aircraft up to 5700 kg, carrying a maximum of 5 passengers. As well, once you have 100 PIC hours you can get your Flight Instructor rating and teach training endorsements.
