A suitable time can be arranged for you to attend the written examination/practical test, and this can be flexible.
Examination & Test Fees:
- Written PPL Communications Examination £35.00
- Practical RTF Communications Test £98.00
Note: Fees do not include the CAA fees which would be charged to issue the FRTOL if it is a stand alone licence. If the FRTOL is applied for where the applicant is the holder of a UK CAA issued licence to act as pilot, flight navigator or flight engineer then the extra CAA issue fee is not payable.
RT Ground School & RT Courses
Ground school training to help prepare you for the written and practical examinations is not a requirement, but most people find it very beneficial. This can be done in the form of one-on-one sessions, or on a course with other students. Studying with other students can be a great way of learning the art of radiotelephony, especially during the practical elements, and it also keeps the costs down. Most people also opt to do a mock practical test before attempting the real test, and this would be done one-on-one.
Ground School & Course Fees:
- 1-on-1 Ground School charged per hour £30.00
- Course depends on duration and numbers Contact us (£)
- Typical Full Course of 4 or more students £150.00 p/person (approximately 15 hours total over 5 sessions)
If people are travelling large distances a course can be tailored to reduce the number of journeys.
Note: All ground school & course fees do not include examination and test fees. Any further ground school required at the end of the course would be at the above ground school rates.
