The  Private Pilot Certificate is the basic unrestricted license that allows you to fly most single-engine airplanes.  It is the starting point for many dreams and also the first step in aviation career. With this certificate you could travel with your family, fly for your business purpose or just for fun.


A person who holds a private pilot license may do almost anything and everything that a commercial pilot may do – except of flying for hire. A Private Pilot with the proper ratings and endorsements may fly higher performance airplanes – including multi-engine airplanes and jets, fly cross-country. Private pilots can carry multiple passengers; fly at night, and properly rated with an FAA instrument rating, fly in MVFR and IFR weather conditions.
