Initial training – First Stage
The goal of this course is for the student to be able to attain the base knowledge for the pilot’s career. During the training the student will be provided with the necessary tools to do the first Solo flight, that is when this stage finishes.
Cross-Country Flight – Second Stage
During this stage the properties and capabilities of the airplane are studied, together with flight planning and navigation and weight and payload; additional Solo flights are conducted, and the cross-country flights begin.
After this, the student will have a second “progress check” that must satisfactorily approve ahead of the first solo cross-country flight, which marks the end of the second stage.
Exam preparation – Third Stage
The final examen comprises a theoretical and a practical instance.
In the theoretical part, the student must be able to answer and solve questions based on regulations and private pilot theory. In the practical part, the student will conduct a flight with the examiner and must satisfactorily demonstrate in flight maneuvers as requested while carrying out the required traffic control communications, navigating and ensuring the safety of the flight.
After the exam, and based on the results, the student will obtain his or her first certificate: the Private Pilot Certificate, issued by the FAA
