Private pilot license PPL(A)

A basic course for anyone who wants to learn how to fly a plane. After completing flight training at our airport in Brno, you will receive your PPL(A) private pilot license for airplanes. With this license, you will be able to pilot single-engine airplanes. 

You can not only fly for your own enjoyment but also take friends and family on board. If you’d like to transport other people for a fee, then you must also obtain a commercial pilot license for airplanes – CPL(A).

As a private pilot, you can fly at any time during the day in good weather. This license can be expanded at the Blue Sky Service flight school, to include other qualifications, such as night flying, instrument flying, aerobatic flying, or a license for multi-engine airplanes.

The PPL(A) license is valid in member countries of the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which includes 28 countries of the European Union as well as Norway, Switzerland, Lichtenstein and Iceland.
