Private Pilot's Licence

PPL (A)

The aim of the PPL course is to train the student pilot to act as PIC without remuneration as PIC or co-pilots of aeroplanes engaged in non-commercial operations.

The Private Pilot's Licence

A Private Pilot License (PPL) is a certification that allows individuals to fly aircraft for personal, non-commercial purposes. It is the first step for most aspiring pilots and grants the privilege to operate aircraft as the pilot-in-command (PIC) for recreational flights, with certain limitations and without compensation.

PPL holders undergo training, pass exams, and accumulate flight hours to attain this essential aviation credential. Check the requirements and apply now!

 Pre-Entry Requirements

Minimum 16 Years

16 years old is the minimum age for Solo Flight and 17 years old for the PPL Licence Issue.

English Language
Applicants are expected to have a proficient level of ability to communicate effectively in English.
EASA Class 2 Medical Certificate
Class 2 Medical Certificate is a standard medical certificate required for PPL Holders.

Maths & Physics
A solid foundation in Mathematics and Physics is essential for grasping the course content effectively.

Theoretical Knowledge

The training and examination covers aspects related to non-technical skills in an integrated manner, taking into account the particular risks associated to the licence and the activity.
The PPL(A) theoretical knowledge course does not specify minimum instruction hours, but Royal Flight Center recommends a minimum amount of 10 hours of classroom or video teleconferencing training.The PPL(A) theoretical knowledge course does not specify minimum instruction hours, but Royal Flight Center recommends a minimum amount of 10 hours of classroom or video teleconferencing training.

Flight Training

Applicants for a PPL(A) shall have completed the Theoretical Knowledge Instruction and at least 45 hours of flight instruction in aeroplanes, 5 of which may have been completed in an FSTD, including: 
  • 35 hours of dual flight instruction; and 
  • 10 hours of supervised solo flight time, including at least 5 hours of solo cross-country flight time with at least 1 cross-country flight of at least 270 km (150 NM).

Credits

Specific Requirements for LAPL(A) Holders
Applicants for a PPL(A) holding an LAPL(A) shall have completed at least 15 hours of flight time on aeroplanes after the issue of the LAPL(A), of which at least 10 shall be flight instruction completed in a training course at a DTO or at an ATO. That training course shall include at least four hours of supervised solo flight time, including at least two hours of solo cross-country flight time with at least one cross-country flight of at least 270 km (150 NM), during which full stop landings at two aerodromes different from the aerodrome of departure shall be made.
The holder of an LAPL in the same category of aircraft shall be credited in full towards the theoretical knowledge instruction and examination requirements

Credits for another Category of Aircraft Holders
Applicants holding a pilot licence for another category of aircraft, with the exception of balloons, shall be credited with 10 % of their total flight time as PIC on such aircraft up to a maximum of 10 hours. The amount of credit given shall in any case not include the requirement of Supervised Solo Flight Time.
For the issue of a PPL, the holder of a licence in another category of aircraft shall receive theoretical knowledge instruction and pass theoretical knowledge examinations to the appropriate level in the following subjects:
  • Principles of flight
  • Operational procedures
  • Flight performance and planning
  • Aircraft general knowledge

The time it takes to complete pilot training and obtain a private pilot license (PPL) can vary depending on several factors, including the frequency of flight lessons, weather conditions, the availability of flight instructors and aircraft, and the individual student's aptitude and dedication. On average, it typically takes about 3 to 6 months for most students to earn their PPL. Here are some key factors that influence the duration of PPL training:

Frequency of Flight Lessons



Students who can schedule more frequent flight lessons (multiple times per week) tend to progress faster in their training. Consistent practice is essential for skill retention and proficiency.

Weather Conditions



Weather can affect flight training, especially in regions with seasonal variations or frequent adverse weather. Poor weather can lead to lesson cancellations or rescheduling.

Availability of Instructors and Aircraft



Flight schools may have varying availability of flight instructors and aircraft.

Ground School and Study Time



Ground school, which covers the theoretical aspects of aviation, is a crucial component of pilot training. The amount of time you dedicate to studying and preparing for ground school exams can impact your overall training duration

Student's Aptitude



Individual students progress at different rates based on their learning style, prior aviation knowledge, and ability to apply what they've learned in flight.

To expedite your PPL training, it's advisable to maintain a consistent training schedule, stay proactive in your studies, and communicate effectively with your flight instructor and flight school. Remember that safety and proficiency are the primary goals of pilot training, so it's important not to rush through the training process. Instead, focus on mastering the necessary skills and knowledge to become a safe and competent pilot.
