Virtually anyone can learn to fly – you only need normal health and eyesight (with or without glasses) in order to pass the medical requirements (a Class 2 medical is the minimum requirement).
There are no age limits for dual instruction, although the student pilot must be at least 17 years of age to be issued with a PPL, and any instruction received prior to a student’s 14th birthday cannot be counted towards the licence.
At Daedalus Aviation, we follow the EASA approved syllabus, which requires a minimum of 45 hours flight training.
The average student can obtain their PPL within 45 to 60 hours of training depending on how regularly they fly.
Students who choose to spread their training over a longer period of time may require more training to meet the required standard.
Starting with general handling exercises you will quickly progress onto learning how to take-off and land the aircraft, before the thrill of your first solo flight. This is followed by advanced exercises such as cross country navigation.
