Learning to Fly

The Club PPL training is conducted in accordance with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) syllabus or the UK National Private Pilot Licence (NPPL) syllabus. The EASA syllabus comprises some 40 individual lessons although a number of lessons may be covered in a single flight. There is no limit to the length of time taken to complete the course. It is beneficial to complete the course as quickly as is (financially) practical to remain in good flying practice and to avoid the need for additional flying to revise previous lessons. PPL students should budget for up to an extra 10 hours continuity flying, particularly if much of the course is planned over the winter when progress might be impeded by poor weather.

 

Ground Study

A certain amount of pre-flight and background study is needed in aviation. The PPL course includes examinations in aviation law, human performance and limitations, meteorology, navigation and radio aids, radio procedures and aircraft technical knowledge. These examinations are mostly of a simple multiple-choice format and can be taken with one of the Club’s qualified ground examiners
 
Approximate Cost of EASA PPL Training
 
Minimum 45 hours syllabus of flying £4500
Extra 10 hours for poor weather/revision £1000
Medical Certificate Fee (approx) £150
Ground Examination Charge £50
Maps, Nav Equipment, Text Books etc £250
PPL Issue and other test fees (approx) £300

TOTAL £6250

The minimum training requirement for the Light Aircraft Pilot's Licence (LAPL) is reduced by about 10 hours and will therefore be cheaper to obtain although the LAPL places some restrictions on the types of aircraft the holder may fly. Whilst the overall cost may look high, training with the PFC is one of the cheapest opportunities, in the country to gain a PPL.
