Learning to fly

Learning to fly, for the sheer pleasure of it, or if you aspire to become a professional pilot, is an experience like no other. Those who have already taken to the skies will tell you that once you have joined the exclusive club of pilots, you will never look back. It is exhilarating, beautiful, and dangerous. It requires knowledge, skill and experience, and full concentration. It requires a Private Pilots Licence PPL(H).

Training is both time-consuming and expensive, so requires a great commitment. However, almost universally the courses that are available are excellent and of a very high standard, so when looking for a flying school all considerations must be taken into account. The advice is that finding an airfield that you can access easily is a great advantage, and one that can provide flight slots that suit your schedule is essential. It can also benefit you to find an airfield that can provide a full range of flying experiences, so in addition to airplane flights, they will also provide glider, balloon, helicopter and gyrocopter experiences.
In the United Kingdom, the minimum age requirements are 16 years old to hold a licence for a balloon or glider and 17 years old to hold a licence for helicopter or aeroplanes. You also need to be in good physical health and the Civil Aviation Authority require you to hold a medical certificate. Check out the CAA website's medical information.
Flight training will include:

  • Ground training and exams on a wide variety of topics such as navigation, safety and basic mechanics
  • Air law
  • Meteorology
  • Communications
