PPL(A) - Private Pilot License

The PPL(A) license will allow you to pilot a "full-up" airplane for hobby flying, as well as private and business trips. If you are pursuing a professional pilot's career, this license is the first stepping stone on your journey, as all subsequent license levels and supplementary certifications assume you hold a PPL(A) as a prerequisite for enrollment. A PPL(A) license is valid almost everywhere in the world.

"My name is Lukáš Vokůrka; I am a Professional Pilot graduate from the Czech Technical University in Prague. Since my school has a flight training partnership with F AIR, I ended up choosing them. There were other options, but I picked F AIR for their convenient location, long experience, pleasant people, and modern planes. When I'd gained my ATPL, I flew with F AIR for a while as a PPL instructor. Today, I am First Officer on ATR 42's and 72's for Czech Airlines (ČSA), the Czech flag carrier, and my job is exactly what I imagined it'd be: amazing, exciting, fun. F AIR is a big part of what made that happen for me, and I'm grateful for their solid training program."

Theory Lessons

Before starting flight lessons, students need to cover a theoretical foundation consisting of air law, general knowledge of aeroplanes, the relevant limitations of human performance, the basics of flying, and radio communication. Once you have commenced flight lessons, additional theory covers mainly flight navigation, meteorology, and preparatory topics for the license examination. If you prefer, you may also take the full theoretical curriculum before starting flight training including examination. The total extent of the theory curriculum is 100 hours, thereof usually 40 hours with a lector and 60 hours self-study. Sessions normally take place at our Benešov facility or one of our other offices, or even online over Skype. At the end of the theory course, you will need to take an official final examination at the Czech Civil Aviation Authority in Prague.

Flight Training

Flight training consists of a minimum of 45 flight hours, whereof a maximum of 5 may be taken in our on-site FNPT II flight simulator. You will start learning the basics of safe flying at one of our home base airports; as you progress, cross-country (navigation training) flights will take you to a number of airports around the Czech Republic and, if you wish, in neighboring countries as well. Other highlights include a two-stopover flight of 270 km minimum total length and 10 hours of solo flying (with an instructor supervision from the ground). By the time you are done, you will have enough knowledge and skill to safely fly most anywhere, including to large international commercial airports. If you also qualify yourself in the ICAO standard of Aviation English, you will be able to take your plane around the world.

You can take your flight lessons at the F AIR home base at Benešov Airport (south of Prague in Central Bohemia) or at our secondary base in Brno, capital of the the Moravian region.
