Once you have obtained your PPL you can carry passengers virtually anywhere in the world as pilot. You can hire the same aeroplane that you have already been flying or you will have the added attraction of converting on to several other types of aircraft – the PA28 161 Warrior, the PA28 181 Archer, the Cessna 140, the CAP 10B (both ‘tail draggers’) or the Robin 2160 (which can include basic aerobatic instruction).

A Private Pilot’s Licence can be just the beginning for many pilots. You may want to be able to fly at night, or in poor weather on instruments, or you may even want to progress all the way to Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence.

Whatever you decide to do with your licence, you can be assured that flying is one of the most challenging and rewarding activities open to people from all walks of life.
