If you would like to learn how to fly, whether for fun or indeed to take that first step to becoming an Airline pilot – our Private Pilot License course is the way to go!
Take the first step by taking an introductory flight with one of our experienced Flight Instructors. Remember if you decide to undertake PPL training, the pace of the course is entirely up to you. You can do it full-time or indeed take a flying lesson every other weekend – our experienced Flight Instructors will guide you through the process.
Your PPL training is your foundation training to be a pilot and starting with a professional, quality training academy is an absolute necessity.
Our Private Pilot License course is EASA Approved which means you can bring your family and friends for pleasure flights in any of the EASA member states.
You can complete the PPL programme in either our C152 or C172 aircraft which ARE the worlds most popular training aircraft. You will be required to:
Complete a minimum of 45 hours of flying instruction with your Instructor
Pass 9 theoretical knowledge examinations set by the Irish Aviation Authority
Pass a Class Two medical examination with an Aviation Medical Examiner
How Long Will It Take?
This largely depends on you and how much free time you have to dedicate to PPL Training. Some of our full-time students have completed the course in under six weeks!

Why Choose Us
The National Flight Centre offers approved courses starting with introductory flights and ranging from Private Pilot Licence (PPL) all the way through to Commercial Airline Pilot courses.
I completed the modular ATPL course with National Flight Centre in April. While the course is hard work the team at NFC made sure that I had all the assistance I needed to get through it. The modular course suited me, as I needed to work my flight training around my own job and NFC were very accommodating in creating a schedule that was manageable. I really enjoyed the atmosphere out in Weston during my training, all the instructors and staff are very helpful and always on hand to assist with any questions I had. Thanks to them I am starting my B737 type rating with Ryanair in December.
I would definitely recommend the National Flight Centre to anyone who is interested in pursuing a flying career!
