Project Description


PPL (Private Pilot License) allows you to fly and command an aircraft with passengers non-commercially. The program consists of theory and practical lessons flown in our Piper PA28 Single Engine aircrafts.

The theory training includes nine subjects covered in approximately 3 months, where the knowledge level is monitored by diagnostics tests during the studies. All subjects are finished off with a school test and an examination.

The practical training consists of 48 flight hours with 11 hours flown solo and is divided in 4 phases:

  • Phase 1 – Basic Flying
  • Phase 2 – Navigation
  • Phase 3 – Basic Instrument Flying
  • Phase 4 – Final Training

To fly in dark hours or in bad weather our courses NQ (Night Qualification) and IR (Instrument Rating) can be added to your PPL.
If your goal is to work as an Pilot the training needs to continue towards a CPL (Commercial Pilot License), check out our ATP-Program for full Commercial Pilot Training.

Our instructors are highly qualified and experienced airline pilots. We have one of the highest percentages of airline experience divided amongst our instructors. This is a key factor for ensuring that our programs are up to date, meeting standards and requirements in a changing aviation industry.
