Private Pilot License India

Private Pilot License (PPL) Program, India

The Private Pilot Training course is ideally suited for aviation enthusiasts, hobby fliers or for those who have access to a personal aircraft. The Private Pilot License training curriculum builds the necessary skills and knowledge that makes the students eligible for Commercial Pilot Training. Unlike, the Commercial Pilot’s license requirement, there is no need for the 10+2 certificate for Private Pilot License training. A High School pass Certificate is adequate for the PPL.
