 "The Guide says there is an art to flying", said Ford, "or rather a knack. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss."

Douglas Adams, The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The initial Pilot’s Licence.

The PPL (Private Pilot’s Licence) and the LAPL (Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence) are specifically designed to be easily achievable to an average man or woman and will train you to a standard where you can conduct a private, passenger carrying flight as pilot in command. Both the PPL and LAPL have different privileges, as set out in the compare the licences page.

Both of these licences require training both on the ground and in the air. There are nine theory subjects to learn and Blackbushe Aviation conducts ground school on each one in addition to regular free seminars on the subjects. Much of the theory can be conducted under 'supervised self-study' where you read the study manuals and undergo initial and/or brush up training at the club.

The flying training is conducted according to the syllabus set out in the Training Manual and each flight is designed to maximise the pupils learning while not overwhelming them. It is preceded by a ground briefing detailing exactly what will take place during the ensuing lesson. A post flight debrief will go through any issues arising during the flight.

You can go on to achieve further ratings such as night rating with a LAPL and with a PPL you can also get your IR(R) so you can fly in cloud, a full IR, a multi-engine rating or go on to your commercial licence training.

Prices start from £182 per hour. Discounted flying and all inclusive packages are available. Please email or call to discuss.
