PPL - private pilot TMG - touring motor glider pilot

Pilots licence - PPL


  • Our flight school provides training courses to achieve the Private pilot license. The qualification grants you the right to act as a pilot-in-command of non-commercial flights for personal purposes on single-pilot aircraft within the category up to the maximum take-off weight of 5 700 kg.
  • Unlike the glider pilot training, the PPL student pilot is a customer of the flight school of Aeroclub Kladno. Therefore, the pilot is provided with a service of higher standard, taking in account his individual requirements and needs. However, the technical capacities of the school and the actual meteorological conditions must be considered.
  • The training to achieve the PPL qualification will be performed according to the relevant regulations of the Czech Republic and the JAA (Joint Aviation Authorities). Within the course of the training, you will fly a minimum of 45 flight hours, on aircraft as Zlin Z-142 and Cessna 172.

- What to do if you want to become a private pilot?-

  • Contact us first and sign up into our flight school, where you will receive the initial information regarding the conditions and requirements in order to launch the training course. The minimal age is 16 years, the applicant must be medically fit. We also require our student pilots to have moral integrity. The application form may be handed in personally, at the aeroclub office. Following the initial paperwork, you will undergo the initial medical examination at the Aeromedical facility in Prague. There is no need to worry, the medical requirements are quite soft.
  • After the successful medical exam, a training agreement needs to be signed.
  • Then, you will be assigned an experienced instructor, who will launch the training by teaching you some theory lessons.
  • The practical training (consisting of 45 hours minimum) may start within the course of the theoretical training. During the elementary training, the applicant obtains all the skill needed to achieve the PPL license (safe take offs, landings, resolving emergencies, the piloting techniques, navigations, flights to other airfields). The number of hours may be raised, either upon the request of the pilot, or his instructor.
  • Upon completing both the theoretical and the practical block of the training, a certificate is issued, to confirm the completion of the training. We may also take some action to assist the applicant in negotiating with the Aviation Authority in order to set up a term for the pilot's exams.
