WELCOME TO POINT COOK FLYING CLUB
Point Cook Flying Club (PCFC), was founded in the mid 1970s by a group of Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) personnel with an interest in recreational flying.
Initially, membership in PCFC was generally limited to serving and retired military personnel. PCFC is now a civillian entity with membership open to both services personnel and the public.
PCFC is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to promote affordable General Aviation and share aviation experiences. PCFC operates two aircraft which are made available for private hire to members at very attractive rates.
The Club has no paid staff, and is run by its members for members.
NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME.
SIGN UP TODAY!
Point Cook Flying Club has two club aircraft online for members to book for self-hire, TBL (C-172) and EYU (C-150), at very attractive rates. The club, being managed by volunteers, does not have staff overheads to cover, hence is able to offer aircraft more or less at cost, with a slight contribution derived for the club.
In addition to these two aircraft, the club has access to a number of aircraft for members to hire if TBL/EYU are being used.

YOUR RECREATIONAL PILOTS LICENSE
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT RPL
1st stage of obtaining your Private Pilot Licence.
The Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL) will be the first licence obtained during your training towards your Private Pilot Licence (PPL). Until this stage you are not authorized to carry any passengers on your flights.
Once you have passed the RPL you may carry passengers to and from the training area during solo flights. You will still be limited to a confined training area unless you have completed an RPL navigational endorsement.

The 2nd Stage: Completion of your Private Pilot Licence (P.P.L.)
Once you have completed the Recreational Pilot Licence (R.P.L) you may then commence navigation training.
The navigation exercises teach you the practical skills and airmanship required for flying safely to distant locations: managing fuel and flight logs; radio communication and transitions through different air space and control zones; unplanned diversions (due to weather etc.); conducting circuits at unfamiliar aerodromes; and landing on different types of surfaces.
YOUR COMMERCIAL PILOTS LICENSE
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT CPL
The CPL is not offered at Point Cook but Morrabbin Aviation Services offer the course out of their Morrabbin base.
If you wish to continue your training and attain a Commercial Pilot Licence, you will need at least 200 hours of flying experience, with specified time spent as pilot in command, and both cross country and instrument flight experience.
If you enrol in an integrated CPL course with Moorabbin Aviation Services, this time may be reduced to 150 hours. The difference in hours reflects the different approach to the training. With the150-hour course, the theory and the flight training are coordinated and conducted together, whereas the 200-hour option is often arranged separately.
