Private Pilot License (PPL)

The Private Pilot License (PPL) is the take-off to your career in Aviation, or the gateway to recreational flying. A PPL allows you to do private flights, and to train further for a Commercial Pilot License (CPL) in order to work commercially as a pilot. Training can be done on a full-time or part-time basis. The PPL course is a very important first step in your life as a pilot. However, it is important to first complete an Introductory Flight Training with an Instructor to serve as a deciding factor for your career.

After completing your PPL it is recommended that you obtain a Night Rating. The Night Rating enables you to fly at night (15 minutes after sunset to 15 minutes before sunrise). This Rating is usually done towards training for your Commercial Pilot License (CPL). You will be permitted to start your Night Rating any time after the completion of your PPL (Private Pilot License).
