student pilot licence
- be at least 16 years of age
- be able to speak, read and understand the English language
The student pilot licence is a permit to learn to fly.
Student pilots can fly 'solo' but are restricted to their
local training area; flights must also be authorised by their instructor
After they have completed further training and examination
including a general flying progress test, student pilots may act as pilot in
command of an aircraft carrying passengers, but not for hire or reward. The area
restriction still applies as does requirement for flights to be authorised.
