Airways Aviation delivers Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) approved Private Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) training for aspiring pilots who want to fly aeroplanes for pleasure. Our PPL (A) is also suitable for people looking to begin pilot training with the basics and work toward their Commercial Pilot Licence (Aeroplane) in a modular way.

At course completion, you will be qualified to fly an aeroplane alone or with passengers for private use. You will also have gained the skills and experience to commence further flight training with confidence.
