The Private Pilot Licence (PPL) is the first step to learning to fly. This is available to students completing their Diploma in Aviation or students wishing to fly for fun.
Ardmore Flying School’s PPL training programmes are of the very highest standard available. We are dedicated to providing first class training and tuition, personally tailored to meet the individual needs of students.
Whatever your aspirations, we believe that good solid training at private pilot level is imperative. Our training programmes are designed to go well beyond the minimum standards required for a Private Pilots Licence. A full time student can achieve an unrestricted Private Pilots Licence within twelve to sixteen weeks subject to weather and ability of the student.
This ensures you are well equipped to handle all situations with confidence while those students continuing on to a professional level will discover they have achieved a standard that makes future training much easier.
Ardmore Flying School teaches you all the practical and theoretical skills required to achieve your PPL. Once the PPL is achieved, students will be able to take passengers and fly anywhere in New Zealand, but you are unable to be employed on a PPL. In 50 hours minimum, we'll take you from no flight experience to being a proficient private pilot.
