The theoretical training can be completed on-site in our school or online.

For the online mode of the PPL course, students can access through the Internet platform (e-learning), where they could find all the theoretical lessons, a chat and all the necessary material to prepare every subject.

The students will keep in touch with the instructors and the rest of the students in every moment through the Moodle platform. Such training will be mentoring by our instructors online.

At the end of the subjects, our students will have a 10 hours on-site review in our school. Furthermore, they will have to pass an own exam before the official exams. The purpose of this own exam is to ensure satisfactory results in the official exams. 

When students pass the official exams they will be accredited in the corresponding theoretical knowledge to develop their work as private pilots (PPL), continuing the practical phase of the training.
