Private Pilot Licence - Part Time

Training for a PPL and attaining a Private Pilot Licence will allow holders to fly an aircraft and carry their own passengers. Navigating an aircraft around Australia with confidence and skill offers pilots freedom, experience and amazing scenic sights.

Overview
The PPL course is suitable for students who already hold a Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL.) If a student does not already hold an RPL, it is recommended that they complete the RPL Course first.

This course is typically chosen by students who want to access VET FEE HELP when they commence the Diploma of Aviation (IFO) for PPL Holders - but need to get a PPL before commencing the Diploma.

The RPL course can be done as a single course, or alternatively the RPL is also taught as the first stage of the Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence.) Overseas students who need a student visa are typically better off enrolling in the Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence) course rather than the stand-alone RPL course.

Details of course
This course can be done as a single course, or alternatively the PPL is also taught as the second stage (after the RPL) of the Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence.)

During this stage, students learn how to navigate and they start to take larger aircraft such as Cessna 172s or Piper Warriors on longer trips.

The PPL stage concludes when students pass the Private Pilot License flying test, which takes 8 weeks full time, alternatively you can learn to fly part time.

Important information on VET FEE HELP and CRICOS
This course is not approved for VET FEE HELP. Students wishing to maximise their access to VET FEE HELP are recommended to self-fund the RPL and the PPL course, and then commence the Diploma of Aviation (IFO) for PPL Holders

This course is not approved for overseas students wanting to access a student visa (ie; it is not registered as a CRICOS course.) If a student requires a student visa, they are recommended to commence the Certificate IV in Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence) course. Overseas students that do not require a student visa are welcome to join this course if they already hold an RPL.
