Recreational Pilot Permit
Introduced in 1995, the RPP is designed for
the 'Weekend Flyer'. It has opened up the field of
aviation to more people by making it affordable to
learn to fly.
The RPP is for you if you plan on flying 'just for
the fun of it' on weekends, or flying to your cottage or
to a weekend camping trip. Once you have obtained your RPP,
there is nothing stopping you from continuing in our Private
Licence program to enjoy even more freedom in aviation.
The restrictions on the RPP are that you cannot
carry more than 1 passenger, you cannot fly at night
and you cannot fly across international borders. You
may not add any ratings to the permit, for example
a float or multi-rating. The aircraft must not have
more than four seats. Some people get this license
as an affordable means of starting their flight career
and upgrade to a PPL when possible. If you write the
Private exam it counts for the RPP and the PPL, saving
you the time and cost of writing two exams.
The costs are estimates based on Minimum requirements
(As at January 2001). Ottawa Aviation Services is
proud to provide personalized training tailored to
individual requirements. At OAS, you are not a number,
but one of our family! The majority of students do
require more time than the minimum required by Transport
Canada. In essence, these costs are based on the minimum,
you can expect to pay slightly more than this amount.
Why not come in or phone, talk to a licence pilot,
so that they can give you a 'real world' scenerio!
