Private Pilot Licence (PPL)

This is the foundation for all your future flying. Once a student obtains their Private Pilot Licence, they are permitted to carry passengers during daylight hours. The licence permits one to fly for recreation or business purposes without remuneration. Students are required to complete 8 theoretical examinations, and 50 flying hours, before graduating.

A PPL takes approximately 5-6 months to complete. This may, however, vary for each individual student.
