Are you considering getting a pilot's license? Then this beginners course is a good start. In 5 lessons of 45 or 60 minutes you will explore your ambitions together with an experienced instructor.
The course is flown from Lelystad Airport, Breda International Airport or airport Midden-Zeeland. In terms of number of flight movements, Lelystad is the busiest Dutch airport after Schiphol. At both locations there is a cozy restaurant at the airport. There is always plenty of activity and you can enjoy all kinds of aircraft that continuously fly off and on, it is a challenging and dynamic environment to learn to fly.
Every lesson is different
In the beginners course there is much more time than with a normal flying lesson to cover all aspects of flying. You also see how quickly you learn in several lessons, there is quite a lot to do and learn in order to control a plane! You will also see that no day is the same in weather conditions, crowds at the airport and the situation in the air.
The beginners course consists of:
- 5 flying lessons of 45 minutes or 60 minutes
- 5 landings
- 2.5 hours theory lesson
- logbook for registration of your flying hours
- briefing in advance and debriefing after each lesson
- weekend surcharges are included for all landings (normally € 15 per landing)
The flight hours of the course count in full for your certification. Depending on the type of license, you need a legal minimum of 30 (LAPL) or 45 hours (PPL).
From Lelystad and airport Midden-Zeeland is flown in a two or four person aircraft. Passengers can only join the four person aircraft. From Breda is flown in a three person plane. In addition to the pupil, one passenger can fly along, with no additional costs. Select the two person plane for this.
