Obtaining a low level endorsement is a regulatory requirement before a pilot can operate below 500 feet above ground level. This endorsement will be necessary for many types of flying, including agricultural flying, aerial survey and mustering.
A low level endorsement can be completed in five hours of flight training. This training includes visual judgement skills, flying in mountainous terrain, general handling and terrain-following.
To commence training for a Low Level Endorsement, as a minimum the pilot must hold a Commercial Pilot Licence.
The initial Low Level Endorsement is completed in the Cessna 152 Aerobat. The training course typically runs over five dual flying hours, followed by a flight test.
Students can commence a Low Level Endorsement at anytime throughout the year.
