Air Law

About the Course

How old do I have to be to fly an aircraft solo? When am I able to take my family flying with me? How far from the cloud do I have to fly?

We will give you the answers to all these questions and many more on our PPL Air Law ground course.

Rules and regulations are designed to help keep us safe in the skies. You will learn where our laws come from and how to access, accurately interpret them and apply them to everyday flying.

Once you have your PPL, many more doors open up for you. Different aircraft type ratings, aerobatic ratings and glider/banner towing ratings are just some of your options.

How do you go about achieving these? This is all covered in the law also, let us show you where!
