To get your private licence from a zero hours starting point you would need to spend about two weeks with us in Alice Springs. During this time you would have a minimum of 16 hours flight instruction and, provided your progress is satisfactory, a flight-test. Theory instruction and tests are conducted in the mornings after flying.
We will tailor the training we supply to your needs and simply charge hourly or per flight rates for the different components. If we supply everything to do with training – balloon, instructor, crew, vehicle etc the cost to achieve a Private Pilot Certificate is about $A18,000 to $A22,000. Obviously if you already have some experience this cost is reduced.
