The Recreational Pilot Licence or RPL is the first pilot licence that you can get. It is gained either as a stand-alone licence or on your way to a Private Licence and beyond.
You need to be a minimum of 16 years of age to hold an RPL. Once you have passed the RPL flight test you are authorised to carry passengers within 25nm of the departure aerodrome.
Before you undertaking an RPL Flight Test you are required to achieve a pass in the Recreational Pilot Licence theory examination along with meeting certain training standards which can all be completed here at the NQAC. We have instructors, study material and lots of helpful advice at the to get you to your RPL.
