Private Pilot License – EASA PPL (A) is a qualification that allows the holder to fly on single engine piston (SEP) aircraft in visual meteorological conditions (VMC) as pilot-in-command (PIC) or co-pilot on aircraft in noncommercial operations without remuneration. PPL (A) training is the first step towards becoming a professional pilot and designed for applicants with 0 flight experience. Once you complete your EASA PPL(A) training, you will get your Private Pilot License and SEP (Single Engine Piston) land qualification.

In combination with our highly experienced Flight Instructors and competitive program fees, Flying Academy is the first choice of pilot training for future Professional or Private Pilots from all continents. All training is performed in accordance with Part-FCL regulations.
- The theoretical preparation consists of 100 hours, out of which at least 35 hours will be with an instructor in a classroom. The ground training is divided into two modules – preparation for the PPL(A) exams and theoretical preparation for flight training.
- Flight training is performed on a single engine piston (SEP) aircraft according to visual flight rules (VFR).
At the end of the flight training, you will have at least 45 hours total time. Out of which:
35 flight hours dual with an instructor:
Dual hours are divided into 3 stages and cover basic airplane handling, take-offs and landings, advanced maneuvers, emergency procedures, simulated instrument flying and navigation flying
10 hours of solo flights:
Solo hours include local solo flights and solo navigation cross-country flights under supervision of the flight instructor on the ground
- Once you pass the theoretical exams at the CAA and complete your practical training, you will need to prove your practical skills. The practical exam is performed under the supervision of a CAA-authorized examiner.
You will need to demonstrate your ability to:
- Operate the airplane within its limitations
- Complete all manoeuvres accurately and smoothly
- React according to the procedures in case of emergency
- Exercise good judgment and airmanship
- Apply aeronautical knowledge
- Maintain control of the aircraft
- At the end of the course, you will have to demonstrate a sufficient level of theoretical knowledge, which will be tested on a set of 9 written tests from the theoretical subjects. To pass the PPL(A) theoretical examination you need to achieve a score of at least 75% from each subject (Meteorology, Navigation, Communications, Aircraft General Knowledge, Principles of Flight, Air Law, Flight Performance and Planning, Human Performance and Limitations, Operational Procedures).
