Private Pilot Licence
Private Pilot Licence (PPL)
A Private Pilot Licence is for pilots who wish to fly without commercial reward, with passengers, anywhere in Australia. The PPL requires a minimum of 35 hours total flight time, 10 hours solo (including 5 hours solo cross-country), 2 hours of Instrument Flight and a pass in the CASA PPL exam (which can be undertaken on-site here at PFS). Our PPL course can be undertaken on a full-time or part-time basis.

Pacific Flight Services also conducts flight training for a Multi-Engine Class Rating, Instrument Rating, for flight in reduced meteorological conditions, and a Flight Instructor Rating for those wishing to pass their skills on to new pilots.
