EASA Flight Training


For those of you who wish to hire or use your own light aircraft, the Private PilotsLicence (PPL) course offers you the training and experience you need – all of our training is approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). If you want to go further and pursue a professional aviation career via the Modular route, the PPL is the first step.

The EASA Private PilotsLicence (PPL) course at British Aviation Center combines both practical flight training and the theoretical knowledge required to fly light aeroplanes or helicopters within the UK and Europe.

The course requires a minimum of forty-five hours flying time – including ten hours solo – ending with a skills test with an examiner. The skills test will examine your general handling and navigation skills.
