Your instructor can adopt your training program according to your knowledge level and skills, but in the end of training, you need to be able to perform all maneuvers and take practical check with Designated Pilot Examiner (DPE).

Is it possible to take flight training, if you have full time employement?

Yes, it is possible. Majority of our students work or run their businesses, it is our task to find the best solution for you how to organise flight training properly.  We are flexible and ready to provide the best organizaiton and scheduling for you.

Is it possible to take training on own airplane?

Yes, you could use your own aircraft for training. We do not recommend to start training in complex aircraft with retractable gear and constant speed propeller in the beginning. It will be not the best solution for you. It is better to move to complex training later. Also you can not start training on high-performance and multy engine airplane in the beginning 

What is the best approach in flight training?

It is very important to move gradually in flight training (step by step):

  • from simple to complex
  • from known to unknown
  • from easy to difficult maneuvers.

Also it is necessary to study theory in order to be ready to move successfully during flighht training. Good theoretical knowledge and professional skills are required to become a good pilot.
