We have a long history... we've been operating since 1992, originally under the name of Adelaide Ultralight Flying School. In 1997, James Hubbard (Chief Flying Instructor) purchased the school and in 2005 renamed it to Recreational Pilots Academy (RPA) as it is known today.
In its time, the academy has provided over 500 students with their recreational pilot's licence and continues to attract people from all walks of life to enjoy the experience. In the last few years the academy has seen a welcome increase in female students, retirees and mature age students - proving this passion bites people of all ages, young and old, male and female alike.
We can help you to experience the exhilaration and joy of being at one with your aircraft and the elements. We can tailor and conduct flying lessons suited to your skills and ability so you too can become a recreational flyer.
With our accredited training, any hours you spend having fun in the air count towards your Private Pilot's Licence (General Aviation). We also offer additional endorsements (including passenger, cross country, low level, Advanced Pilot Award (APA), tail dragger and more) and can conduct your Biennial Flight Review (BFR) or conversion from GA to RA (Recreational Aviation).
