Course Structure and Overview
Recreational Pilot Certificate
Step One | Obtain the Following
- Australian Security Identification Card (ASIC).
- Class 2 Medical – you will need to obtain this from an authorised Designated Aviation Medical Examiner (DAME).
RA-Aus Membership (3 or 12 months).
- All Instructors and Students wishing to undertake training on any Recreational Aviation registered Aircraft will need to be a current RA-Aus Member. However, if you choose to fly General Aviation (GA) registered aircraft, this is not necessary.
- English Language Proficiency Check & Assessment. All students, regardless of their background, will need to complete this to prove their competency in the standard Aviation language – English.
Step Two | Flight Training towards your Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL)
Part-time | 6 Months or flexible as required *Students are recommended to fly at least once a week, to avoid remedial training.
Step Three | Theory
Private Students are to study the associated content in their own time at home. One on one tutoring classes can be arranged with your flight instructor if preferred.
You must complete a combination of practical flight training and pass exams to be able to hold your RPL.
Start your journey to your Recreational Pilot Licence with one of our Introductory packages. We have 30 minutes, 45 minute and 60-minute trial flights but the best place to start would be our Learn to Fly Starter Package where you get three hours flying for $899.00 AUD.
These three lessons can even count towards your PPL as we give you your very own Piltos Logbook as part of the package.

The atmosphere at Soar is positive, focused, encouraging yet relaxed and smooth. With flexible timetables for classes and adaptable schedules for flight time; it’s a no-brainer to pick who I’d recommend everyone to fly with.Nicky Wang
