Overview

A Private Pilot Licence is ideal for the recreational pilot who wishes to fly away for family trips or simply venture a little further from home for the day.  The licence enables you to fly in both controlled and non-controlled airspace within Australia, giving a wide range of options for travel.
The PPL course is also Phase 1 of our CPL course, so if you decided you wanted to make a career as a pilot, you could simply continue with the rest of the CPL course.


Flying Training

The course is planned on a minimum of 54 aircraft hours for a full-time integrated programme.  Ab-initio training is conducted in a C152.  Once basic handling skills are mastered, you will progress to a C172 for navigation and intermediate training.  Navigation training progresses from uncontrolled airspace primarily in south-west WA to Class D controlled airspace at Jandakot Airport.


Theoretical Training

Theoretical knowledge training in the form of lectures and flight briefings is integrated with the practical training throughout the course. For those unable to attend a full-time ground school, a significant amount of self-study is required. Additional ground school is provided prior to sitting the PPL theory exam, which is undertaken at Bunbury Flying School.
