Private Pilot Licence (PPL), and Commercial Modular Course (CPL).

Premier Flight Training Flying a CAA Approved Training Organisation (0312):

We offer the CAA Private Pilots Licence. This can also be Module 1 of a Commercial Course.

This CAA Licence requires a MINIMUM Total of 45 Hours Flight Time,
which must include:
a minimum of 25 Hours Dual Flight Time.
A minimum of 10 Hours Solo Flight Time.

A Class 2 CAA Medical is required for the PPL, and this has to be taken with a CAA Approved Doctor. A class 1 medical is required for The CPL Module.

There is no maximum time period as such, and therefore you can spread the flying lessons to suit your time and pocket. However it is recommended to maintain continuity, that you should try to take a lesson at least every 2 weeks. The CPL Module can be completed part or full time.

The CAA Light Aircraft Pilots Licence is a MINIMUM of 30 hours Flight time,
The LAPL has a more simple content to the CAA PPL, and the use of this Licence is more limited .

Both PPL syllabii require completion of various ground subjects, and written examinations in those subjects.
We offer customised workbooks, ground school, and examination facilities on site.

To add to your CAA PPL we can offer a Night Qualification (mandatory for The CPL), and An Instrument Meteorology Condition Rating, and Multi Engine Piston Rating (optional for The CPL, depending on your License requirement).

The Night Certificate is a course based on 5 hours of flight at night. 3 hours of which must be Dual flight, and 5 Solo Take Off and Landings must be logged. There must be at least 1 hour of Night Navigation included in the Dual.

The Instrument Rating (Restricted) – IR(r) is the IMC UK National Rating, and although can only be used in UK Airspace, it allows much greater flexibility and a greater margin of safety with regard to cross country flights.
The IR(r) rating is a Minimum course of 15 hours flying with reference to instrument flying and operational procedures.

Multi Engine Piston rating in our Seneca ( PA34 200T) aircraft. You need 70 hours after your PPL to start the MEP. It is a 6 hour course plus test, and Ground Examination. This can also be part of The CPL Modular Course.

Commercial Pilot’s Licence course is 25 hours, part of which is completed on The Twin, or if applying for Single Engine only, then on a complex single. There is a flight test and the theory examinations must be complete. This is the 4th Module of the Commercial course and follows structured hour building to achieve a total of 200 hours.

We also offer the Flying Instructor course and will shortly add the Full Instrument Rating course to the list.

The Airline Pilot Standard course/ Multi-crew co-operation course are  available through a partnership with Virtual Aviation at Cambridge.

Premier Flight Training also is pleased to offer a CAA Aerobatic Certificate . Depending on individual experience and expectations, this is a minimum of 5 hours Dual Aerobatic Flight. This starts with exploring the Aircrafts envelope at slow, and high speed. A good revision of all aircraft emergency procedures, and learning and practising the basic 5 Aerobatic Manoeuvres. More advanced courses are also possible.
