UK CAA Private Pilot Licence (PPL (A))

The Falcon Flying Group has been granting students the freedom of the skies for decades. Trust our instructors to help you gain your internationally recognised UK CAA PPL.

With training conducted in our four-seat Piper PA-28 aircraft, the PPL requires a minimum of 45 hours flying. The length of time and the flight hours you require, however, will come down to your commitment to the course and all that is involved.

The flight training follows the UK CAA syllabus, including pre-flight preparation, ground handling, airport and traffic pattern operations, cross country navigation, short and grass field operations, emergency and post flight procedures.

Whilst the PPL is a structured course, training can be scheduled around work, education and any other commitments that you may have. It is advantageous to have a dedicated schedule, but we understand that life can sometimes get in the way. With this in mind, we offer online booking and are open seven days a week, giving you as much flexibility as you need.

If you were to fly once a week, you can expect your training to take around 18-24 months from start to the skills test. If you were to commit to the course on a full-time basis, it could be completed in little as three months – weather and personal progress depending.
