AAA PPL Navigation Course

It’s a big country out there…do you have the “right stuff” to navigate with confidence?

The Australian Aerobatic Academy’s Private Pilot Licence (PPL) Navigation Course is designed to provide student pilots with the skills required to navigate anywhere in the world with confidence by day in fine weather conditions.

The course concentrates on visual navigation techniques and overlays this with the use of radio and satellite navigation aids. The AAA PPL Navigation course also provides graduates with an ability to fly in and out of Controlled Aerodromes such as Canberra and Controlled Airspace which allows graduates to fly procedures such as the “Sydney Harbour Scenic.”

Successful completion of the course recommends the student for the CASA Private Pilot Licence flight test.

Whilst normally completed in the Robin 2160, the PPL navigation course can also be undertaken in our Rockwell Commander 112B so you can gain Retractable Undercarriage and Manual Propeller Pitch Control (CSU) Endorsements concurrently (additional charges apply).

Time-poor? Complete your PPL training in just one week! Enquire about our “fly-away” PPL course (subject to aircraft and instructor availability).
