EASA Private Pilot Licence (PPL)
The EASA Private Pilot Licence (PPL) enables you to fly throughout Europe and take passengers with you. Whether you fancy a simple sightseeing flight in the local area or a weekend in France, the PPL covers all these options.
The Private Pilot Licence can be an achievement in itself or used as a stepping stone to further commercial licences and a career as a pilot.

(b) Notwithstanding the paragraph above, the holder of a PPL (A) with instructor or examiner privileges may receive remuneration.
