If you are either dreaming to start a career in aviation or just to fly for your own pleasure, e.g. to take your family and friends for a fascinating trip, a Private Pilot Licence is what you need.
The PPL(A) training is the base for any other licence, such as a commercial licence or an instrument rating. It’s the solid foundation for anything that you’d like to achieve in your life as a pilot.
After acquiring a PPL(A) licence you will be able to fly a single-engine aircraft, such as small Piper and Cessna, under Visual Flight Rules (VFR). With the PPL you can fly aircraft up to 5 passengers and 5700kg maximum weight.
The licence is ICAO confirmal, so it also can be validated and converted to foreign licences worldwide, e.g. if you like to fly somewhere in your holiday.
A certain amount of flying is necessary to keep your licence current and stay in training, our school aircraft will be also available for rent for you once you have received your licence!
The training for PPL(A) contains theoretical and practical flight instruction. The course can be started anytime and the dates for flying can be set individually after your schedule.
Theory training for PPL contains the following subjects:
– Aircraft performance and Flightplanning
– Human performance
– Operational Procedures
– Aerodynamics / Principles of Flight
– Radio Communication
The training will be held via a distance learning course (in English) or as a classroom course. In the least case a minimum of 100 hours training is required to complete the course. We are able to host the classroom course also as a Webinar, so you can attend from home. A written theoretical exam in all subjects is required to obtain the PPL(A).
Flight training will be held at one of our training bases. For PPL a minimum of 45h flight training is required. This time will be splitted in following minimum requirements:
– 25h flight time with instructor
– 10h solo flight time
– 5h solo cross country flight with at least a 300km distance flight
Beside the theoretical examination you will have to demonstrate your skills to a examiner of the aviation authority to obtain your licence.
Let us know if you have any questions! We are also free for a personal meeting or a video chat to find the right solution for your way to become a pilot.
