Introduction to the Runway
The Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) is a cost effective way to achieve your first pilot licence. Equivalent to the Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL), the RPC will teach you the fundamental theory and practical skills you need to fly and land an aircraft. When your instructor feels that you are competent in your abilities, you will complete your flight test and if successful, you will be awarded your RPC. We can assist you if you wish to convert your RPC to an RPL upon completion
Recreational Pilot Certificate Process
Upon enrolment, you will receive a Training Starter Kit which contains basic information about flight training theory and practice. It will cover topics such as runway orientation, aircraft checklists, airport and airspace introduction, wing terminology, basic flight training procedures and radio call structures.
The theory sessions will cover aeronautical knowledge, aircraft general knowledge, flight rules, radio procedures and Moorabbin Airport procedures. Ground theory will be integrated into flight training. You will need to pass the Radio and Pre-Solo Air Legislation exams before going solo.
Before your scheduled flight training lessons, you’ll be able to utilise our professional flight training simulators to practice all procedures. The simulator helps you understand exactly how to perform in each training session before getting into the real aircraft. It is an ideal way to enhance your training efficiency and minimise costs.
The flight training you will undertake will be conducted in the newest generation Bristell or Sling 2 aircraft. Both aircrafts are equipped with modern glass cockpit avionics and LCD flight instrument displays similar to those in commercial passenger jets. Every new exercise is demonstrated by the flight instructor and the student will improve learned skills through practice.
When the instructor is confident in your abilities, you will be sent on your first solo flight. During your first solo, you will be in the aircraft on your own with your instructor watching from the ground. It’s an unforgettable experience and thrilling milestone for every pilot!
After ongoing instruction and practice, you will be put forward for your RPC flight test. In a test with the Chief Flying Instructor at Learn to Fly Melbourne, you will demonstrate the skills and knowledge you have developed throughout your training. If you meet the appropriate standard, you will be awarded your Recreational Pilot Certificate.
