Private Pilot
License Course

About the Course

A Private Pilot License is the first step in starting your journey in aviation. It sets a strong aeronautical foundation in both knowledge and skills for students to become a professional pilot or for a pilot that just wants to fly for fun.

Earning a Private Pilot License gives you the freedom to fly anywhere you want  with your friends and family. Private pilots can fly an airplane in visual flight conditions both day and night.
