Private Pilot License training is the first step towards becoming a professional pilot. No flight experience is needed!
- Minimum age: on the day of the first solo flight the student pilot must be at least 16 years old. In order to obtain the license, the student must be 17 years old.
- Medical certificate: a candidate applying for a Private Pilot License PPL(A) must hold a valid Class II medical certificate.
- Minimum education: upper-primary or equivalent.
Theory studies can take place at school in a one-on-one format so you don’t have to wait until a group has formed.
The theoretical training comprises 100 hours of lectures with the instructors.
The training for PPL consists of the theoretical part, which is followed by the practical one. The practical training curriculum includes minimum 45 hours of training flights according to PART-FCL regulations for the PPL(A) and it is done in three stages (tasks):
- Mastering basic skills in a training area and making aerodrome circuit flights (with an instructor and solo)
- Basic instrument flights
- Navigational cross-country and VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flights.
After completing these three stages, the student pilot masters the skill of independent, safe flight performance according to the PPL(A) specifications.
Goals and Qualifications
The purpose of the PPL(A) course is to prepare the student pilot for safe and efficient flying according to VFR rules. The thorough and comprehensive theoretical preparation will allow the student pilot to use his knowledge during the practical part.
After completing the training and receiving the license the pilot will be rated to fly single-engine planes with maximum take-off weight of 5700 kg. In Poland, the number of aerodromes is increasing and there is an airport in every major Polish city. Therefore, if a pilot wants to fly- even the sky is not the limit!
The school employs the best flight instructors in the field. Some of them are Israeli Air Force veterans and some of the worked in recognized airline companies. With over 25 years of experience the school has the ability and infrastructure to train the best pilots.
Cessna 172 is a universal 4-seat plane and most popular basic training plane for pilot training. Its long range and advanced avionics make it the safer, more professional and right choice for commercial or PPL training.
FNA offers professional lecture rooms, where the students will be able to explore the world of aviation. In addition, the school’s simulators allow students to repeatedly practice different flight modes in a calm and protected environment.
Affordable prices and professional training with leading instructors, young and ambitious staff in a Family atmosphere!
