Private Pilot License

A Private Pilot License (PPL) is the most common starting point. It requires 40-70 hours of flight time, with ground school studies alongside actual Flying.

In the United Kingdom, the regulatory body for obtaining a Private Pilot License (PPL) is the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is the regulatory body responsible for pilot licensing in most European member states.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the governing body that issues pilot licenses in the USA. It oversees all aspects of civil aviation in the country, including pilot training and certification.

Medical Checks for a Flight School

The specific medical tests may vary slightly depending on the medical class, but generally, you can expect the following:

  • Medical History Review: The medical examiner will discuss past illnesses, medication, or surgery.
  • Physical Examination: This will involve a general check of your body systems, including blood pressure, heart rate, vision, hearing and neurological function.
  • Vision Tests: You must meet specific visual acuity standards, often correctable with glasses or contacts. Colour vision testing is also mandatory.
  •  Additional Tests (Higher Class Medcials): You may be asked to have an electrocardiogram (ECG) to assess heart function, lung function, and blood test.

Tips for a Successful Medical Check

  • Be honest about your Medical History: Disclose any past or present medical conditions to the examiner.
  • Manage Existing Conditions: If you have a controlled medical condition, ensure it is well managed with medication or treatment before the exam.
  • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: Healthy eating, regular exercise, and adequate sleep will contribute to a successful medical check.

Remember, passing a medical exam is a must for flight learning. It ensures your and others' safety in the skies.

Injuries You Might Sustain when Flying (Learning)

Pilot Training, especially in the early stages, is focused on learning the skills and building the experience of flying safely. However, there are still some potential risks involved. Here are some of the injuries that might be sustained during pilot training.

  • Musculoskeletal Injuries: Small aeroplanes can be pretty bumpy, and student pilots spend a lot of time gripping the controls and manoeuvring the aircraft, leading to repetitive stress injuries in the wrists, shoulders and neck.
  • Motion Sickness: Some student pilots experience motion sickness, especially during their first few flights. This can lead to nausea, dizziness and vomiting.
  • Hearing Loss: Prolonged exposure to loud noises, such as the engine of a small plane, can damage hearing.
  • Headaches: Dehydration, stress and eyestrain can be constructed to headaches during pilot training.
