The Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) is administered by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). The RPL will allow pilots to fly a slightly heavier aircraft (possibly with more seats) than on their recreational pilots certificate and with a few more options to add on.

Stick ‘n Rudder will start your training with completing a recreational pilots certificate through RA-Aus and then do a conversion in our Cessna 180 to gain your recreational pilots license. We find this is the most cost effective way to complete flight training.

What are the medical requirements?
There’s a few medical options for this licence. Check out CASA Medicals. If you’re unsure please contact us.

What aircraft do we use for the course?
Cessna 180 – Coming soon!

Theory Exams:
There isn’t any required for the transition from RPC to RPL, however when you conduct a Flight Review to activate the licence you will need to know the privileges and limitations of this licence.

Typical Timeframe To Complete Training:
This can be done in as little as one day. Most of our students complete a Manual Propeller Pitch Control design feature endorsement in the process.

Previous Experience Required?
If you’re training with Stick ‘n Rudder, you’ll need your RPC first!
