Recreational Pilot Permit
Fly for fun!
The Recreational Pilot Permit is an quick and affordable way to learn how to fly for fun. It can also be easily upgraded to a Private Pilot License should you decide to continue your pilot training.
A Recreational Pilot Permit will allow you to carry up to one passenger with an aircraft that has four seats or less. You will be able to fly within Canada’s borders.
In order to obtain your RPP, you’ll need a minimum of:
- 25 hours of flight training
- 15 hours dual flight (with an instructor).
- 5 hours solo flight.
Although ground school is not required by the Canadian Air Regulations, you still need to pass the exam and most likely need some help.
You’ll need to pass a Transport Canada flight and written exam to obtain your permit.
