The PPL License can be extended with a number of qualifications. For example flying blind qualification (Instrument Rating), which is necessary for instrument flying. During this course you will learn how to fly an airplane and gradually explore the capabilities of the airplane. All basic flying techniques are discussed. This involves take off, landing, climbing, level flight, turns, stalls, descents, circuit flying, emergency procedures, etc. As student pilot you work towards your first solo flight, which means flying without your instructor next to you. The next step after your first solo flight is to learn how to navigate with the aid of charts, compass, radio beacons etc. First you fly to other aerodromes with your instructor next to you and later you do this during solo flights. Next to building flying experiences, your navigational skills will be refined. Such attention is paid to divert to a destination aerodrome other than the scheduled aerodrome if circumstances necessitated. Also the basic flying blind aspects will be discussed.
