HOW TO BECOME A PILOT

Have you been dreaming of becoming a pilot, but you still don't know where to start? In the next few steps, we will easily guide you through the choice of appropriate flight training from our offer.

Step1

First, think about whether you want to fly especially for your own pleasure, or to start a professional career as a pilot. If you decide to fly just for fun and start to truly enjoy piloting later, you can complete advanced training and become a commercial pilot. You can then provide your services for a fee.

Step2

Remember that a prerequisite for obtaining a private pilot license is a Class 2 medical certificate which will be certified by an authorized aviation doctor. Both a professional pilot and a commercial pilot must have Class 1 certificate. The age to start both trainings is 16 years, but you can only complete a professional pilot program after reaching the age of 18. Sufficient knowledge of spoken and written English is also a prerequisite for you to be able to communicate over the radio during a flight.

Step3

Naturally, each training for beginners includes a theoretical part to become familiar with the theory of flying, navigation, radiocommunications and meteorology. You will learn to plan a flight and perform a pre-flight check properly.

Step4

Do you know that piloting will be just a hobby for you at the beginning? Start with the private pilot PPL(A) training which is a springboard for your pilot career.

Step5

Are you a newcomer to flying and are you sure you want to make a living as a pilot? Then you are looking for a full professional 0-ATPL(A) training.

Step6

Are you a proud owner of a PPL(A) licence? We offer further rating courses. If you fly actively, you will certainly make use of the NIGHT rating, a prerequisite for instrument flying. After flying 70 hours as a pilot in command, you can go on a multi-engine flying course, and later complete an instrument flying course. After flying 150 hours, you can start the commercial pilot training. If you have completed instrument flying training at that time, this course will be shorter.
