PPL theory course 2019-2020

As from today it is possible to enrol in our English PPL(A) theory course of 2019-2020.

This year, the course starts on September the 21th at 1:30 pm.        Click here to enrol!    

It is also possible (and advised) to follow our introduction class on Saturday the 14th of September, 1:30 pm.

The course is given on the airfield of Grimbergen (Vliegveld Grimbergen), only 15 kilometers away from Brussels, and is oriented towards the international community and expatriates living in Belgium. Of course, Dutch or French speaking candidates can also participate in the English course, but they may as well choose to enrol in the Dutch or French course. Our theory course is modular which means the student can "drop in" any time a new subject starts (so it is possible to start the course at every moment in the year).

While the main purpose is theoretical training in order to obtain the Private Pilot License, courses are open to anyone who would like to know more about flying or for any pilot who wishes to refresh his/her knowledge.

The English course is given by a team of highly motivated ground instructors on Saturday afternoons between 1:30pm and 5pm, from September until June. Its total duration is 112 hours. Together with the instructor, students can mutually agree to change dates/times subject to their availability. The PPL(A) theory course costs € 600 and includes books.
