Pilot Certificates and Licences


Recreational Pilot Certificate

With simple medical requirements and some of the industry’s most modern light aircraft, a RAAus Recreational Pilot Certificate might be for you.


Recreational Pilot Licence

The Recreational Pilot Licence is the first licence available in the general aviation path. It allows you to fly solo, or with passengers, in the training area, as well as add on endorsements like navigation, controlled airspace, aerobatics, and more. It’s the perfect platform on which to gain experience for the next step: your Private Pilot Licence


Private Pilot Licence

Enjoy the unrestricted freedom of being able to fly anywhere in Australia. Private Pilot training expands on your training and teaches you the skills required to navigate and fly into controlled airspace such as Moorabbin and Essendon.

Commercial Pilot Licence

To be employed as a professional pilot for remuneration, you must first hold a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL). This is one of the most challenging licences available, but the team at PAC is well equipped to help you achieve it. You can train either part- or full-time.
