PPL stands for Private Pilot’s Licence and is a course designed to train you to confidently handle a light aircraft and fly with passengers.
We offer full PPL training. The course consists of a minimum of 45 hours, at least ten of these hours need to be solo flight. The course follows an internationally recognised structure and syllabus covering all basic manoeuvres.
Tail Dragger Training and Conversions
At Crowfield Airfield we have a Piper Super Cub 150hp which is available for tail dragger training/conversions/farm strip flying or you can learn to fly on our Super Cub and complete your full PPL course on a tail dragger.
IMC IR(R) training
The IMC IR(R) rating qualifies you to fly in various weather conditions in certain types of airspace including poor visibility and cloud.
It concludes with a test, during which you show your proficiency at controlling the aircraft, using the various flight instruments and follow an ‘instrument approach procedure’ to navigate on to the final approach to land.
Find out more about the PPL on the Civil Aviation Authority website.
Biennial flight reviews
We also offer a Biennial Flight Review (BFR) and revalidation service.
