Pilot Training Sunshine Coast
Recreational Pilot Licence
The Recreational Pilot Licence, RPL(H), allows you to fly privately in light helicopters in a designated area. The CASA minimum number of hours for this course is 25, however most students prefer to have a few extra hours to hone their skills.
Controlled aerodrome and navigation endorsements may be added to the RPL(H) taking the minimum hours to 32 hours flight time. This course includes 2 hours instrument flight time and 7 hours flight navigation.
The skill level to fly a helicopter is quite high. Most students, therefore upgrade to either private or commercial licences.
