Pilot Training

A course refers to a specialized study program. It usually takes place on campus but can be delivered online. Courses are popular for people who want to get specific knowledge in one subject.

The next step in pilot training is acquiring the pilot’s license. After Ground School has been completed, successful candidates for this sort of training will continue on to Flight School. This program involves hands-on activities and procedures dealing with the science of flying.

Education in the United Kingdom is a devolved matter with each of the countries of the United Kingdom having separate systems under different governments: the UK Government is responsible for England, and the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive are responsible for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, respectively.

PPL Licence Course PPL overview and costs Not to be confused with our PPL Plus + course (for PPL holders wishing to improve their existing skills) our PPL initial training introduces the candidate to flight in a single engine aeroplane and starts with general handling until a good proficiency is obtained. Key to this is the teaching of basic principles of flight - leading to the understanding of how and why the aircraft performs as it does. The next section covers practice in the airfield circuit where the candidate becomes familiar with airfield operations and skilled in take-off, landing and the recognition and correction of potential problems. The candidate will take their first solo flight in the circuit when proficient to do so. Cross country flight, navigation and ATC The next phase focuses on cross-country flight, which includes flight planning, visual and radio navigation, Air Traffic Control communication, practice diversions and emergency procedures including operations at larger commercial airports. This culminates in a solo cross-country flight of 270 km landing at 2 other airfields during the flight. The final section consists of preparation and rehearsal for the PPL skill test. All manoeuvres are reviewed during this phase and the candidate's proficiency is raised to the standard required for the PPL flight test. Exams: During the course the candidate prepares for and sits the PPL ground examinations. There are 9 written ground exams during the course. All training takes place in a Cessna 152 or a Piper Warrior. Minimum hours to... [-]
