Answers for You
HOW LONG ARE THE TRAINING DAYS?
Your first day will start at 9am, thereafter you will be starting around sunrise, which will be approximately 7:30am. The first few days will be the longest and typically you will finish around 4pm - 5pm with a 90 minute lunch break.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL TRAINING DAY CONSIST OF?
The first week will typically see you out on the field in the morning, learning to ground handle, get a feel for the motor, experiencing tow launches and simulated launches and landings. The afternoons will consist of classroom work. You will also take your first flight, usually within 4-5 days. The second week will consist of mornings of ground handling practice and flights, weather dependent.
DO YOU NEED TO BE PHYSICALLY FIT?
Not to a great degree no but it will help to have a certain level of fitness as the first few days can be challenging due to the intensive nature of the course. Please contact us if you need to discuss your fitness as we can also provide you with a fitness training program in preparation for your PPG training.
WHO IS PPG FOR?
Anyone with a desire to fly! From ages 16 to 70+ if you have always wanted to pilot your own aircraft then this is one of the simpliest and safest ways to fly and with a basic level of fitness it is achievable for all.
WILL WE HAVE TIME FOR SIGHT SEEING IN FLORIDA?
Yes. The second week of your training usually allows for a short day or a 'day off', allowing you to get away and see some sights. There may also be days when the weather is not favourable to fly, giving you the opportunity to explore.
