Hunter Valley Aviation use the Cessna 152 as the starting point for most of our RPL students. It is slower than the other aircraft in the fleet, so students have more time to prepare for manoeuvres. The high wing design also provides exceptional stability and visibility.

Dual: $365.00 | Solo: $260.00

Suited for students who are looking for something a little bigger for their RPL training, or for basic navigation training. The Piper Warrior is a great four seat platform for training or a for a fun getaway.

The Piper Archer is similar to the Piper Warrior, but slightly faster. As such, it is also ideal for PPL training, and is used extensively for additional ratings such as Night VFR and Private Instrument Rating. These ratings can be added onto a 'base' licence to allow a pilot to operate in more conditions.

The Cessna C182Q Skylane is a great step into flying a more complex single engine aircraft. The aircraft is a pleasure to fly with a spacious cabin for up to four people and an amazing outlook for viewing the scenery below.


Dual: $555.00 | Solo: $450.00

A heavier and faster option for commercial training. It requires a bigger step up in skill level, however, it is the most commonly used aircraft in single-engine entry level jobs in Australia. Alumni that have trained in the Cessna 206 have found it helps them secure their first job.

The Baron is the most widely used twin-engine charter aircraft in Australia. It is faster than the Duchess, and more complex to use. Experience in the Baron gives graduates an advantage when applying to operators that use Barons.
