PILOT LICENCE & PILOT PERMIT OPTIONS

flight training

RECREATIONAL PILOT PERMIT

The Recreational Pilot Permit is the simplest and fastest way to start flying. You can start your training at the age of 14, and complete your training at a younger age than the Private Pilot Licence. Although this is a faster route to flying on your own, it is important to know that there are restrictions on where, when and what you can fly with this type of licence.

PRIVATE PILOT LICENCE

The Private Pilot Licence gives you more flexibility and freedom to fly at different times and in different aircraft. It also is the licence type you require to move further with more advanced flight training or specialty ratings – float, night, and/or instrument.

COMMERCIAL PILOT LICENCE

A commercial licence allows a pilot to fly for compensation. It is the foundation for all professional pilot careers. See College Program for more information.
