Private Pilot Licence (PPL)
Practical training is of minimum 45 hours. You will master basic manouvers, take-offs, landings, and emergency procedures through navigation on cross country flights. All of these are necessary to prepare you to safely operate a single engine piston aircraft.
Training consist of DUAL instruction with your Flight Instructor on board and supervised SOLO flying. Over 80 percent of our trainees manage to do their first SOLO around 20 hours of flight time and finish training within the minimum 45 hours.
There are 13 subjects to pass at EASA level. Each stage is comprised of approximately 3 months of Distance Learning (average study time 15 hours per week), accompanied with web based training. A 4-day Ground School is at the end of each stage. It is comprised of subject overviews and exam preparation at our Training Centre just prior to sitting each stage of EASA exams. Exams are computer based multiple choice question sheets with a pass mark of 75 percent conducted on state-of-the art iPads, even annexes are digital saving candidates valuable time for answering the questions correctly.
There is a maximum of 6 sittings available to finish the exams within 18 months from the initiation of the first one. A sitting is NOT 1 day only but 10! The theory exam is in our centre, you don’t have to go anywhere to take it. Most candidates finish 4-5 exams at a sitting at our location on the first 2 days.
It is recommended to start NVFR training when candidates approach 100 hours of flight experience, or just before the Instrument Rating module. The training consists of a theory course which is concluded by an in-house exam after 5 hours of flying. It is generally completed in 2-3 nights.
Time building is started as soon as candidates receive their PPL to consolidate and improve their flying skills and experience before starting advanced flight training modules. Hour building and ATPL Theory can be done at the same time. During Hour Building trainees will gain experience with international flights to controlled airports and in more demanding situations.
50 hours of dual flight training to enable trainees to conduct IFR flights in Single Engine Piston aircrafts. Training can generally be completed in a month. A skill test is required at the end of this module.
