If you are interested in the world of aviation and would like to start flying, attaining your PPL private pilot license will make you enjoy the feeling of piloting an airplane and also have the possibility of developing your career as a pilot with Panamedia.

The PPL (A) Private Pilot license is considered a “recreational license”. The holder is allowed to fly as pilot in command (PIC) or co-pilot on aircraft in non-commercial and unpaid operations. Upon finishing the PPL (A) course and getting the license, you can fly Single Engine Piston (SEP) aircraft in Visual Weather Conditions (VMC).
 
If you want to keep growing professionally, we recommend you to also visit the integrated commercial pilot course, Air Traffic Pilot License – ATPL (A) or the modular commercial pilot course, Commercial Pilot License – CPL.
