Learning to fly a tailwheel aircraft
CASA RECREATIONAL PILOT LICENCE (RPL)
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 aircraft do we use for the course?
Super Decathlon (8KCAB) – Click here to read more.
We will soon be using a Cessna 180 for our RPL course.
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!
