LEARN TO FLY!
PRIVATE PILOT'S LICENCE (PPL)
This is the first modular training step to becoming a Commercial Pilot. Many PPL holders fly for pleasure or business.
Additional ratings can be added to this licence including Night Rating, Instrument Rating Restricted, and further aircraft types such as motor gliders and multi-engine aircraft.
You will learn about airfield lighting, navigation techniques in the dark, flying circuits and landing in the dark and how much fun it can be! The night rating is also required if you are considering moving on to commercial flying and is counted towards your commercial Pilot's licence training.
Instrument Rating-restricted is an additional rating that can be attached to a UK CAA Pilot's licence. The rating allows the holder to fly in instrument metrological conditions (in cloud) in UK airspace up to and including class D. The holder is also allowed to fly instrument approaches in visibility down to 1800 meters.
