PRIVATE PILOT LICENCE
This course is designed to take someone with no knowledge of flying whatsoever, up to having the competencies of being able to sit for their PPL.
South Australia is a beautiful place to live, but does suffer from “the tyranny of distance” to many places. Long car trips (especially with the kids) aren’t much fun, so we can train you from no knowledge of flying at all, right through to either a visually qualified private pilot, or a fully instrument rated private pilot.
The basic Private Pilot Licence (PPL) allows you to fly in the daytime only, with good visual conditions.
Many private pilots like to extend their PPL licence over time to include Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) which is the capability to fly by instruments alone, with no visibility. This means you can fly at night, and in poor weather conditions.
Some private pilots find that they love flying so much that they then choose to go on get their Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL), enabling them to be paid to fly. All training under our private pilot licence training is compatible with continuing on to a career as a pilot if you decide to do so in the future.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) is the body that awards the actual licence, so this course is designed to place you in the best position possible to attain your licence.
