Private Pilot Course

The Private Pilot license is the doorway to making your dream of flight a reality. It will allow you to legally fly in good weather conditions with friends and family in most countries worldwide. And with the additional Instrument and Multi-engine ratings you will be able to fly in most conditions that airline pilots do.

There will be many "firsts" on your way to the Private Pilot License - first flight, first radio communication, your first solo flight and landing, first solo cross country ... Your world will literally never be the same and the sense of achievement and satisfaction is equal to none! 

At  Academy of Aviation we operate both G1000 and traditionally equipped G1000 Flight Instrument Panelairplanes. Flying the Skyhawk G1000 is an experience of its own and you will most definitely feel on the cutting edge of what General Aviation has to offer.  

Why wait? Your journey can begin today! Our professional instructors will be glad to talk to you and explain all the little details to get you started and to successfully go all the way to your first pilot’s license.
