How much does a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) cost?
In Australia, to start the Private Pilot Licence (PPL) training, you’ll first need to finish the Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), or the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) training syllabus. So, to determine the total cost of obtaining your PPL you will also need to factor in that training. The overall cost will also depend on what aircraft you choose to fly during your training.
Some cost examples are below, based on our flight package pricing. These packages can be split into interest-free monthly instalments via SplitIt. Note that there are some ancillary items not included in the flight package, such as landing fees at different airports. We also have Pay As You Fly options available.
RPL flying in a Sling 2 $11,750
PPL flying in a Sling 2 $13,250
Total overall cost $25,000
