While you must be at least 15 years old before you complete your first solo flight, that doesn’t mean you can’t start to learn to fly beforehand. We have had students as young as 12 years of age taking lessons and getting an early start on achieving their dreams. If you do decide to start early we recommend spacing your flying out by only flying one to two times a month to slowly progress to a RPL standard just in time for your 16th birthday (the earliest you can hold a CASA approved licence). And really, what an unforgettable day that would be!
On the other end of the scale, there is no upper age limit to start to learn how to fly. As long as you can pass the medical to hold a pilot licence, it is never too late to start to achieve your life long goals. As a mid-to-late-life-crisis, it’s cheaper than a divorce or a new European convertible.
We would love to help you explore the world of flight. If you have any thoughts about where your age puts you in relation to your dreams, contact us today.
