Program Overview

RPC Cross Country Endorsement

Take The Next Step

Are you ready to explore Australia as a Recreational Pilot? Our Recreational Pilot Certificate Cross Country Endorsement program is programmed to teach you the navigation and flight planning skills required to do so.

Having obtained your Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC), the next stage in your flight training process is the RPC Cross Country Endorsement. You will learn how to navigate from point A to point B, and expanding your horizons beyond the 25 nautical mile range of your departure airport. In this course, you will plan and execute several navigational flights, whilst improving on the fundamental flying skill-set you developed in your earlier training.

Spread Your Wings

On successful completion of the RPC Cross Country Endorsement course, you will be allowed to act as a Pilot in Command to both plan and conduct navigational flights throughout Australia in a RAAus registered aircraft. The confidence and skill-set to fly further and longer is a crucial step in any pilot’s aviation journey. 

Schedule a meeting with one of our aviation career specialists to discuss whether this is the right course for you.
