Private Pilot Licence

PPL: The most common licence for pilots in Canada

Private Pilot Licence

Obtaining a private pilot licence (PP) is an important step in the life of any pilot. The choice of flight school and the quality of instruction are also very important! The adoption of good flying habits from the very first flights will result in excellent pilots. After 20 years, the reputation of alm Par Avion is well established and confirmed by many licenced pilots!

The Private Pilot Licence allows you to fly an aircraft, carry multiple passengers and add endorsements (ratings) such as: night flying, seaplane, multi-engine, aerobatics, VFR OTT and instrument flying.

The holder of such a licence may fly under day VFR in an aircraft of the class and type for which the licence is endorsed anywhere in Canada and the United States. In addition, the Private Pilot Licence allows the holder to carry passengers, but not to be paid as a pilot.

The private pilot licence is also recognized abroad and can easily be converted into a foreign licence. It is the most common licence for pilots in Canada.
