Discounted Private Hire – Block Hours

Block Hour Rates (Wet**)To financially assist new students and encourage more regular private pilots we also offer a discounted block rate for aircraft hire.

  • 10 hours – $1665 ($166.50/hr) – this rate effectively means you pay for 9 hours and get an hour free at the normal rate. Great for students or pilots who are looking to fly regularly.

The block hours are subject to the following conditions:

  • Block hours must be purchased in advance
  • Block hours expire 12 months from the purchase date
  • Block hours can be rolled over upon a purchase of another block of hours. For example if you have 1 hour remaining and purchase another 10 hours your 1 hour will be rolled over into a total of 11 hours and will have a new 12 month expiry.
  • Block hours are non-refundable.
  • Block hours are for aircraft hire. Landing fees, instructors, and any other charges incurred are to be paid separately via the normal process.
  • This offer is only available to club members residing in Australia
  • Block hours are not available to CPL/ ATPL / International equivalent hours building pilots – with the exception of local pilots who have completed their Ab-initio training on our aircraft and who are working towards their CPL/ATPL.

Note for Cross Country Flights: When refueling from country air strips, higher hire rates will apply if the cost of the fuel differential is greater than that of Jandakot.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure accuracy, hire rates are calculated on a number of variables which are subject to change outside our control at any time. Our club holds responsibility for posting accurate hire rates on our website; however you are advised to confirm current instructor rates with Air Australia International. The cost of an instructor depends on the grade (experience) of instructor. Standard aircraft hire rates only apply when refueling from Jandakot. If you plan to refuel from other airports, then you need to arrange this through the committee as extra costs may be incurred.

*Please refer to ERSA for local traffic regulations including limitations on circuits after hours.

**Wet hire means a hire that includes fuel in the hourly rate.
