BROADENING YOUR FUTURE

The Private Pilot License (PPL) program enables students to progress through a coordinated program of ground school, dual and solo flight training. Most students will require more than the minimum flight training as shown. On average, students will require 50-60 hours to complete the PPL. Ideally, students should take ground school prior to, or in conjunction with their in-flight training. *Training is also available in owner-aircraft.
