It has almost a global validity and after passing the test of Aviation English you can also fly abroad. It’s enable to holders to fly as pilot in command or co-pilot of any airplane used in non-comercial flying. If necessary, it can be extended by a night rating or instrument rating or qualifying for multi-engine types (MEP).
Why complete PPL(A) just with us?
- We are flying on airplanes Cessna 172 at the cost of smaller Cessna 152.
- Cessna 172 acts as larger aircraft and more comfortable to travel.
- We offer our graduates a bargain price for the lease of the aircraft after the completion of training for the purpose of additional hours flown.
- Students have the option to use during training corporate aviation database and planning programs (JeppView, EuroFPL, etc.).
- The aircraft is installed iPad with internet access, which offers navigation and flight planning.
Miminum age to commence the training is 16 years, 17 yaers to gain the licence. Applicant must hold valid II class medical cerftificate or higher. This certificate is issued at Institut of Aviation Medicine (ULZ) in Prague 6 – it is paid entrance medical check up at specialized doctors. If you don’t have any serious health problems, the doctor certifies you as fit and issues you a medical certificate. The check up needs to be ordered beforehand at ULY dispatch – tel.: +420 973 212 455.
Before commencing practical flying, student must gain theoretical basics including air law, meteorology, general knowledge of airplane, human limitations, flight basics and communication. Other part of theory education proceeds during practical training and is aimed especially at general navigation, meteorology and preparation for final pilot examination.
Total training flight time is 45 hours and it is performed on the Cessna 172. First at all, students have to be familiar with the aircraft and its flight characteristics. In Addition, students learn flying on the border of limits of the airplane and various emergency situations. During training undergo several cross-country flight, first under the supervision of instrutor and then individually. The longest flight is set at 270 km with two stopovers at foreign airports. Since we fly from the international airport in Brno-Tuřany, you also get awareness about the movement of a large airport. After completion of training PPL(A) you are adequately prepared for safe flying in the Czech Republic. Length of practical training can be described as c. 20 flight days. Flight day means for our client a day, when he/she can visit our school for 3-4 hours (pre-flight briefing, 1-3 flight hours, de-briefing) and when there are satisfactory meteorological conditions. In case of very intensive attendance it is possible to complete the whole course within one month, average length of course is most often 4-6 month.
The first qualification, which the pilots usually do after getting a PPL is qualification for flying at night. This qualification may be obtain as a part of private pilot airplanes course – PPL(A). Also NIGHT is a necessary requirement for the start of training instrument flying – IR(A) and to obtain a commercial pilot licence – CPL(A).
This qualification entitles its holder to complete night flight in VFR condition (visual flight with reference country). Theoretical or practical test is not required, after completion of the course, the qualification is directly incorporated into the student’s licence. Length of training is five and half hours night flying, including several flights with an instructor.
INSTRUMENT CLAUSE IR(A)
IFR allows the holder IR fly for nearly jakýhkoliv weather conditions. A pupil will be trained in the approved curriculum, which includes IFR en route, descent and emergency procedures for IFR. Our flight school provide training for the instrument clause, a single-engine IR / SEP.

Applicants for an IR clause must pass a theoretical course in duration of 200 hours or attend ATPL theoretical course which includes teaching instrument flying.
Duration of practical training is a provision set at 50 hours, 30 of which can be completed on a simulator (FNPT II).
Theoretical tests are carried out at CAA have a similar structure to the PPL examination.
The practical test consists in about an hour and half-long flight examiner.
Credit previous practice
Holders of qualifications CPL (A) may undertake an abbreviated IR training of 45 hours (30 hours in a simulator, 15 hours on airplanes). Holders IR (H) receive 10 hours of training instrument flying on airplanes.
