The Recreational Aviation Australia (RA_Aus) Pilot Certificate is the first stage along the way. You must be aged
15 years or more and be medically fit to drive a motor vehicle in Australia. To achieve this certificate, you will have
completed a minimum of 20 hours flying training which includes 5 hours of solo flight. Before each flight you will
receive a detailed briefing on the lesson procedure you are about to undertake, for example: Straight & Level -
Climbing and Descending. You will then commence the actual flying component of the lesson where your instructor
will demonstrate all the techniques involved and then assist with your practising of this manoeuvre until you are
proficient. With each lesson you will become more familiar and confident with controlling the aircraft, an increasing
ability to apply strong airmanship techniques and finally the ultimate outcome of achieving your Pilot Certificate.
Once achieved, this Certificate allows you to fly as pilot in command within a 25 nautical mile radius from the airfield
of departure by yourself. This is the stepping stone to your future as a pilot.
Many people may already have some pilot training or qualification behind them. This may reflect in the time required
