Guest Cralis Posted September 17, 2008 Share Posted September 17, 2008 Hi guys, I'd like to ask a few questions that might guide me in the right direction of whether or not to do my PPL. I see it will cost upwards from $15K to get me to PPL status. But once I have done all the hours, tests and got my PPL... what next? I'd love to be able to.. maybe once or twice a month, go with my family on a trip to small towns around Queensland or further away for a weekend. I can't afford to own an aircraft (yet). If you hire an aircraft.. can you take it for the weekend? Do you pay for the hours it's away, or the hours the engine is running? Then, there would be the option to further my licencing up to maybe instructors. That's maybe a pipe dream, as I have a family to support... but the options there. Are fixed wing instructors in any form of demand? I'm trying to work out if it's worth the 15K or so to get a licence... What can I do with it once I am qualified? And what sort of costs are involved in being a recreational pilot in Australia. Hopefully people can give mme some opinions. Maybe someone had the same thoughts as me, and have achieved their goals. Would be good to hear both positive and negative feelings. Thanks guys. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
