CONTROLLED AIRSPACE ENDORSEMENT

Overview: Full-Time – Up to 5 consecutive days

Unlock more destinations! Adding a Controlled Airspace Endorsement to your CASA Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) is a great way enjoy more flying adventures, that are further afield. This endorsement allows you to transit along the beautiful coastlines of Australia, whilst travelling through controlled airspace and high density areas. Additionally, this endorsement provides pilots with more options in the event that they encounter adverse weather on their flight path.

Like all of our courses, the RPL is designed to be completed in a short, fully immersive training block. This creates the ideal training environment to achieve your goals. It not only improves retention rates of new information and skills, but it allows our instructors to spend one-on-one time with you, tailoring the course to your individual learning needs. 

Completion of this course will give you a Controlled Airspace & Aerodrome Endorsement on your CASA RPL, an all-access pass to the best locations on offer and improved flight safety.
