So of course the type of license you need to get will depend on what type of flying you want to be doing.
If you want to be doing commercial flights for companies then you would go for the commercial license, but if you would rather own a plane, or be able to rent out one and fly it yourself, you would go for the private license.
The objective of these courses is to provide the best professional flying training possible and to make sure the pilots that come out with their license are safe, efficient, professional and suitable for employment.
Between the two licenses, the commercial and private meaning is not the only difference.
A private flying license will allow you to fly as a pilot in command anywhere in Australia. As a private pilot you are not allowed to charge for your services unless you have a commercial license, but you are allowed to share the cost of hiring a plane with your passengers.
The Private Pilot License is made out of four main stages: First Solo Flight
Training Area Solo Flight
- General Flying Progress Test
- Private Pilot License
