Surround yourself with people who are only going to lift you higher.
Pilots are a rare kind of human. They leave the ordinary surface of the word, to purify their soul in the sky, and they come down to earth, only after receiving the communion of the infinite.
~ Jose Maria Velasco Ibarra


The Recreational Pilot Permit allows you to:

  • fly all single-engine aircraft that are classified as non-high performance,
  • during daylight hours,
  • under Visual Flight Rules,
  • with a maximum of 4 seats and up to one passenger.

A Recreational Permit may be upgraded to a Private Licence which will allow you to train for additional ratings.


Training Overview

The Recreational Pilot Permit program is divided into two separate related paths, ground school, and air instruction. Ground school will provide you with the required background knowledge and understandings to successfully pass the written examination, while the air instruction and solo practice will provide you with the skills required to succeed at the flight test.
