Flight Training

APA has been making learning to fly fun, friendly and affordable since 1989, with obtaining a Recreational Pilot Certificate in a Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) the simplest and most cost-effective way to take to the skies. Our airfield is located half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast which means that your training takes place far away from congested airspace and there is no time spent transiting to the training area or waiting for clearances etcetera.

If your future aspirations include moving onto larger aircraft, recently introduced legislation recognises the Recreational Pilot Certificate (RPC) as equivalent to a CASA Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) with time in a light sport aircraft counting directly towards an RPL, which is the first step towards obtaining higher qualifications.
