With the licensing situation in the UK so confused post-Brexit, which PPL should you go for, especially if you are thinking of a commercial career?
Pilots Paradise, a flight training company in Florida, USA, has just launched ‘The Global PPL’ . Over the three-month full-time course, student pilots will train for, and take exams, to get THREE licences – UK, FAA and EASA.
Oli Fisher of Pilots Paradise told FLYER, “They can then get hours and ATPLs done at leisure and decide which licence they want to take all the way to ATPL but at least they have the option to start with. The cost is not much more than doing just a UK PPL in the UK.”
Pilots Paradise started as a flying holiday company but recently became a UK, FAA and EASA Approved Training Organisation (ATO) as well. This enables it to offer pilot training up to ATPL standard.
“We can offer full FAA Commercial Multi IR training and a full EASA ATPL programme with our EASA partners in France,” continued Oli.
“Our staff have huge experience in providing quality training and the Head of Training is a 30-year veteran with over 15,000 hours instruction.
“I and the Accountable Manager bring current airline experience as a part time pilot for British Airways and run our UK office at Gloucestershire Airport.”
