Private Pilot License

The Private Pilot’s License is the first step to get yourself into the skies, whether you just wish to fly as a hobby or to begin a career.  Like all our other courses, we offer the PPL (A) on a modular training system.  It consists of ground theory as well as flight training.

The ground theory can be conducted on a full-time basis, part-time basis, or self-study basis.  It includes 9 subjects and, therefore, 9 examinations.  Once the 9 examinations are finished, the student will also have to sit for a Radio Telephony exam, and an English Language Proficiency Exam.  Once all of this is finished, the student will start his/her flight training.
