Recreational Pilot License Training
To obtain a Recreational Pilot License (RPL) you must be at least 16 years old. You must have a current medical certificate (this may be either Class 1 or 2, or a Recreational Aviation Medical). However, there are conditions on the number of passengers you can carry if you hold a Recreational Aviation Medical certificate only.
Recreational Pilot License (RPL) Requirements
Have 25 hours’ flight time (comprising 20 hours dual and five hours solo)
Pass an aeronautical exam with the associated rating
Pass a flight test
Recreational Pilot License (RPL) Limitations
RPL holders are limited to;
Operating within 25nm from the aerodrome where the flight began, the designated training area, or a direct route between the two day and one day VFR private operations in a single engine aircraft.
If an individual already holds a Pilot Certificate issued by a Recreational Aviation Administration Organisation or a GFPT, they will be able to exercise the privileges of an RPL after they have conducted a flight review.
