PPL(A) training. Step by step
1. Obtaining your medical
A medical certificate can be issued by your AME on the same day as the examination if all the requirements are met. A Class 2 medical certificate is valid for 60 months if you are under 40. If you are aged between 40 and 50 the certificate will be valid for 24 months. If you are aged 50 or over the certificate will be valid for 12 months.
You can receive a list of the aeromedical centers, AME's and application form in our clubhouse or on the website of the Belgian CAA.
Note: Your medical is not required until you start flying solo.
2. Theoretical and practical training
Read more about the theory course here. All information regarding practical training can be found here.
Preparation for the theoretical exam can be done by following the weekly courses at our club house and by self-study. The exam must be taken in Brussels at the offices of the Belgian Civil Aviation Authority. Multiple choice questions cover the nine different subjects studied during the ground course. All the exams are computer-based and must be completed in one day. You must score at least 75% in each subject to achieve a pass.
After having passed the theory you can end your training with the practical exam. During this flight test of approximately 2 hours you have to demonstrate your ability to perform the relevant procedures and manoeuvres with a degree of competency and of safety appropriate to the privileges granted to the holder of a PPL(A).
