In order to exercise the privileges of a light aircraft pilot license, you must hold a Class 2 or LAPL medical certificate. The Pilot medical exam is a routine exam done by aviation medical examiners, who will issue your medical certificate after the exam.

Introductory Flight

Are you interested in learning to fly, but you would like to try it out first without commitment? Join us for an Introductory Flight, which is basically a regular flight lesson with a Flight Instructor. You will be involved in the preflight ground briefing, aircraft inspection, and you will be able to pilot the aircraft under the supervision of your instructor. You will get to log the flight just like a regular lesson and will get a chance to see how you like the flying.

Introductory Flight is also a perfect opportunity to get to know our flight instructors and learn more about flying as a career or as a hobby.
