Sylabus
  • The sylabus generally follows the CAA requirement, with some extras that we feel necessary to cover for practical reasons.  We offer a ground course of approximately 2 hours, which makes the 3 hour flying training flow more logically. DVDs are also presented to the students to keep for home study covering Mountain Flying and Mountain Survival. Topics covered on the ground course include:
  • 1 Why?
  • 2 References - GAP, Mountain Flying, Winter Flying, QN, MC, MF,
  • 3 Legal, PPL and CPL requirements.
