Flight Training, Your Next Adventure!
Flying the PAL-V is like flying a gyroplane – easy and safe. You will be surprised how easy it is to fly a gyroplane and how smooth it soars through the sky. If you consider that a gyroplane cannot stall and it practically floats in the air, your flying experience will be relaxed and highly addictive.
The PAL-V Pilot Training Program
All pilots are required to pass several theoretical exams on safety-related subjects including the weather, navigation, air law and the human aspects of flying. We help you learn these topics, partly by self-study and partly by scenario-driven workshops that make the topics meaningful and interesting to learn.
The Simple Steps to Get Your License
The PAL-V training exists out of 6 modules which will prepare you in the best way possible to become a confident aviator. The outline of the course is the following;
We will get you flying ‘hands-on’ from day 1. You will learn the basics of flying and how the aircraft behaves in the air.
You will be given the controls to do take-offs and landings.
We will teach you about airfield protocols. You will practice take-offs and landings until you perfect them.
We will help you understand some of the special features of a gyroplane with more advanced manoeuvres. You will start your first solo flight!
Module 5 is all about using your aircraft for personal mobility. You will learn how to use navigation aids and communicate on the radio.
In this last module we will prepare you for your skills test. You will practice until you feel confident and ready to obtain your pilot license.
