Private Pilots Licence

For those of you who wish to hire or use your own light aircraft, the Private Pilots Licence (PPL) course offers you the training and experience you need. All of our training is approved by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). If you want to go further and pursue a professional aviation career via the Modular route, the PPL is the first step.

The EASA Private Pilots Licence (PPL) course at ACS Flight Training combines both practical flight training and the theoretical knowledge required to fly light aircraft within the UK and Europe.

The course requires a minimum of 45 hours flying time – including ten hours solo – ending with a skills test with an examiner. (Resident at Perth Airport)

The skills test will examine your general handling and navigation skills.
