The Royal Newcastle Aero Club has been training private pilots since 1928. Situated on the New England Highway at Rutherford, our club is in a perfect position to begin your flying training over the picturesque Hunter Valley. Our highly experienced flying instructors and many thousands of flight hours undertaken by members every year, you will gain the most from your flying training at RNAC.
Having achieved your Private Pilot Licence you may undertake further training to gain an operational rating, or sport flying activities.
Operational ratings include Night Flying for example.
Flight Activities are more orientated toward sport flying such as aerobatics and formation flying.
Another advantage of the Private Pilot Licence is that it allows the pilot to train to fly larger and more complicated aeroplanes such as twin engine aeroplanes. Holders of Recreational Pilot Licence’s are limited to four seat aeroplanes.
