Wow, that's super cool! I started mine 1n 1984 and got 10 hours into it and the money ran out. Being a student at time time, I could not afford to go on. So, you have finished what so many of us start but don't, for whatever reason, finish.Robb

to stay current is the easy part I think! Someone with a PPL should have no problems! Its a different story if you also hold many different ratings. Yes then keeping current can be expensive.Holders of an Australian day VFR PPL must have completed 3 take off and landings in the last 90 days to be current. Our PPL never expires, you just need your medical every 2 years to validate the PPL. We must also do a quick check ride every 2 years but that's just a few circuits and forced landings with an instructor who then just signs your log book.So No I don't think staying current on your basic VFR PPL is hard or expensive. I could do the minimum 3 take off and landings in 90 days and it would cost me about $50. If I go over that 90 days I just need an instructor to take me on a quick check flight and that would cost no more than $180.
