Practical training

The practical part of the training contains 30 flight lessons, 5 lesson hours of which have to be flown without a flight instructor (solo). At least 2 cross country flights need to be included in the practical training with each at least 200km route and 2 landings at different airports. We are mainly using our Sila 450c.


The training will be completed by a theoretical and a practical examination. For logical reasons the theoretical examination will be taken after the student pilot's first solo-flight, whereby all subjects of the theoretical training will be examined by means of multiple choice. The practical examination will be taken at the end of the training, when you will fly together with an examiner for about 60 minutes.
