Private Pilot Licence

The PPL (Private Pilot License) is an EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) License, with which almost all single-engine airplanes may be flown. 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.

To obtain the Private Pilot License, a candidate is required to have at least 45 hours flying experience (including at least 25 hours with an instructor and at least 10 hours solo). With about 1 training flight per week, the training can be completed in 1 year.

To obtain the Private Pilot License theory examinations must also be taken.
