What is the PPL license about and what can you do with it?

Ready4Landing, in addition to the Commercial Pilot Course, offers the Private Pilot License or PPL, which is granted to individuals who have obtained the certification. With it, you can work as a Co-pilot or Pilot in command, as long as it is not a commercial flight and depending on the type of certification you want to obtain (single-engine, multi-engine, etc.).

Currently, this is the most common license in general aviation.

Indeed, at the beginning, you won't be paid to fly, but having the PPL license is essential as the first step towards becoming a Commercial Pilot, a position that offers economic benefits.

At our pilot school in Madrid, you will learn to fly and obtain your PPL license aboard the most modern aircraft in a realistic environment.

What are the requirements to become a Private Pilot PPL?

The best thing about this course is that no previous knowledge is required, but you must:

  • Be at least 17 years old.
  • Have a valid Class 2 medical certificate, which is less stringent than a Class 1 certificate.

This certificate is essential to demonstrate that you have the mental and physical conditions necessary to operate an aircraft. Although the European Standard is not very strict regarding the requirements, it emphasizes that the person must be fit to assume that responsibility.

As you can see, the requirements for this career are not excessive. You just need enthusiasm, willingness, and the drive to take on new challenges.



According to the latest data released by the aviation giant Boeing, it is projected that the airline industry will grow by more than 70% before 2036. This means that a large number of skilled pilots will be required.

Be part of this rising wave of professionals!

Course Duration

At Ready4Landing, the course has a duration of 4 to 6 months. A time that can be adjusted to your availability and needs.

Generally, both practical and theoretical hours are managed, where you must reach a total of 45 hours in the air as a guarantee that you master the aircraft and its piloting functions.

At our school, once the modules are completed, you can obtain the Single Engine Piston Land (SEPL) endorsement to fly piston or single-engine aircraft.

What areas are covered in the training for private pilots?

If you have already decided to train as a Private Pilot, it is important for you to know the areas in which you will be trained.

You will receive theoretical instruction in the following subjects:

  • Communication
  • General knowledge of the aircraft
  • Aeronautical legislation
  • Meteorology and navigation
  • Principles of flight
  • All operational procedures

Regarding the practical component, our flight school provides modern aircraft for you to complete a minimum of 45 flight hours.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Becoming a Private Pilot

Advantages and Disadvantages of Becoming a Private Pilot

There are actually very few disadvantages to having a PPL license. However, it is good to be aware of the limitations of this license.

The first limitation is that you cannot receive payment for flying; you can only do it for leisure and recreation.

But it is also true that without the PPL, you cannot pursue training as a Commercial Pilot. So, if that is your ultimate goal and the gateway to flying commercial aircraft for different airlines, the Private Pilot course is the starting point.

Now, let's look at the advantages of obtaining this license:

  • You will be able to fly worldwide in Spanish-registered aircraft.
  • Being a pilot gives you prestige and recognition among friends and family.
  • You will enter the world of General Aviation, where you can continue your training to become a Commercial Pilot in the future.
  • The feeling of freedom you will experience is unparalleled.

Additional Ratings of the PPL License

Thanks to your PPL license as a Private Pilot, you will be able to progress in aviation training and obtain the following flight endorsements.

Each of these endorsements or steps has a different technical purpose.

What type of aircraft can I fly with the PPL?

A pilot who obtains the PPL license can fly any aircraft, as long as it is for recreational purposes and not commercial.

However, it is important to note that the type of aircraft you can fly depends on the additional ratings you have completed in your license. With Ready4Landing, you will obtain the SEPL rating (Single Engine Piston Land), which allows you to fly single-engine piston aircraft.
