As an EASA Approved Training Organisation, we offer a wide variety of Part-FCL training courses, all of which are in full compliance with CAA and EASA regulations. We currently offer PPL (Private Pilotâ€™s License) and LAPL (Light Aircraft Pilotâ€™s License)
PPL stands for â€˜Private Pilots Licenceâ€™, and is effectively the aviation equivalent of a drivers licence, in that it entitles you to pilot an aircraft privately and with non-commercial passengers. Unlike a driving licence you have to pass a medical examination, and you have to keep your rating current to maintain it (by flying a specified number of hours a year). The Private Pilots Licence requires renewal after 5 years.
Those totally new to aviation and considering a PPL for the first time will find that the PPL is simply an introduction to aviation and the pleasures of flying. So rather than provide a beginning and an end, a PPL is more akin to a foundation for pilot training which you can then build experience and add additional flying privileges, whether you want to add IMC ratings (to enable you to fly in more difficult weather conditions) or even aerobatics in due course.
