Private Pilot Courses and Classes

Private Pilot Courses and ClassesA private pilot license (PPL) or, in the US, a private pilot certificate, is a license that permits the holder to act as the pilot in command of an aircraft privately (not for pay). You must be at least 17 years old. If you want to be a private glider pilot or be rated for free flight in a balloon, you must be at least 16 years old. You have to pass both a written knowledge test and a practical (flight) test to receive a private pilot license.

Private pilot courses prepare students to pass Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) exams and earn a Private Pilot Certificate. Many colleges offer private pilot programs, which generally take a year to complete. Private pilot training is also the first step in a professional pilot program.

Ground School Course

Before students can begin flying, they need to study flying basics on the ground. Ground school courses explain the scientific principles of flight, aircraft systems and radio operation. Students read aeronautical manuals and learn to complete flight plans and logbooks. They also learn the federal, state and local laws and regulations that apply to private pilot flight.

Flight Instruments Course

This course familiarizes students with the many instruments found on a plane’s flight panel. Through ground and flight practice, students learn how to operate a plane by instrument flight rules (IFR), which involves navigating a plane using only the flight instruments. Class training covers the use of IFR charts and instrument-based approaches. These skills are key for flight in conditions where visibility is limited, such as during night flights or when flying through clouds.

Meteorology for Aviation Course

Many elements of weather and climate can influence flight, including rain, temperature, air pressure and moisture. This class explains the effects of these elements and the weather systems that generate them. Students learn to create flight plans based on weather forecasts and make safety-conscious decisions about weather changes during flight.

Flight Training Course

Pilots in training take a number of flights, both with instructors and solo, to gain hands-on experience and demonstrate an understanding of concepts learned in ground school. Students meet with the instructor before flight to review procedures and maneuvers to be practiced in the air and then meet after the flight to evaluate performance. Students make short-term and cross-country flights. At the end of this course, students should have enough flight time to qualify for the FAA private pilot exam.

After a Private license is obtained, most people begin their training for an Instrument Rating, and than finally their flight training for Commercial Pilot. If you are serious about the airlines, you will need to add-on a multi-engine rating that allows you to fly multi-engine airplanes. Some people do this after their Private, and some people add this on after their Commercial.
