By now, you will be wondering how much it will cost you to learn to fly. It’s not cheap! It’s a major investment, whether for pleasure or an investment in a career.

For specific details and costs, please phone or email us and we will send you a copy of our brochure.

Below are some ball-park figures, so that you can start to do your sums:

Other costs:

  • Operational documents approximately $350.00
  • Medical examination depending on age is approximately $250.00
  • Theory training kit for self-study is $1350.00
  • Theory examination fee depending on licence type is approximately $125.00
  • Flight test $100
  • Issue of licence by CASA depending on licence type is $65.00

Note: That not all students attain their licence in the minimum hours, particularly if you spread your training over an extended period of time.

If you intend training full time then you should also budget for the fact that you will probably not be earning a living during your training, plus the cost of accommodation if you don’t presently live in Brisbane or near Caboolture.

Please talk to us about your situation, so that we can advise you the best way for you to do your training.
