who will do the mayor part of the training and take care of you. We intend, that you will have only one instructor on the entire training, however occasionally a change may be unavoidable.

This is one of the most efficient and effective ways of training.

Students with average skills can do the entire flight training in around 4-5 weeks.

You can also divide your training into several visits


for example, two trips of around two weeks or four trips of around one week. If you live locally, we can make individual arrangements. In short, all our training is done on an one‐to‐one basis , tailored to your individual needs. Flexibility is our business!

This requires 5 hours of flight training at night , including 3 hours of dual training and 5 solo take‐offs and landings and 3 hours of ground school.

The NVFR will be added as a rating to your PPL licence.

Once you have completed your theory and flight training, passed passed the skill test, radio telephony test and language proficiency check, your training will be finished! You will receive all the necessary papers, application forms and documents to send to the competent Authority to apply for your licence.
