Private Pilots Licence
The Private Pilot’s Licence is the first and most basic qualification obtained by pilots which qualifies them to fly single engine aircraft. The PPL allows the student to act as Pilot in Command (PIC) of most single engine, piston-powered, fixed-wing aircraft during the day, in Visual Meteorological Conditions, and to carry passengers.
Most students will have very little or no flight time experience when starting the course. It is vital that PPL training is maintained to a high standard, as it is by definition the foundation of a pilot’s skills and their qualities as an airman. For this reason, it is extremely important that the correct techniques, skills, and disciplines are taught from the beginning.
The traditional route of obtaining the EASA PPL consists of a minimum of 45 hours of flight time, including 25 hours with an instructor (dual) and 10 hours of flight without an instructor (solo). The difference may comprise of either solo or dual time as necessary. The course also consists of essential ground training and plenty of private self-study to be able to gain the technical knowledge necessary and pass the nine written exams. These can be taken during the course and must be passed prior to the final flight test. Training is conducted in aircraft with the latest avionics, all glass.
Additional flight training is sometimes required depending on an individual’s progress made throughout the training. Advancement is assessed by means of a series of progress tests (PT’s) which are incorporated into the syllabus. The exact number of hours required to reach proficiency will, to a large extent, depend on an individual’s aptitude and ability, however, the quality of instructing plays a significant part in this, one key reason we only employ instructors who are dedicated, qualified and knowledgeable about what is required to obtain the license.
Your instructor’s ability to identify if his student understands the training is a crucial aspect of high quality flight training, since misunderstandings or weak areas of technique must be addressed before flight training can progress efficiently.
