PBN Upgrade : Short course for Certificate of PBN Ground School Course Completion



You need to have completed a Private Pilots Licence (PPL) before starting our commercial pilot training.  This is not a regulatory requirement, but this level of flying experience is a sensible starting point and so required by Pathway.  A suitable PPL course can be arranged by us if needed - this enables you and us to assess if you are suited to becoming a professional pilot.  You also need to have basic academic qualifications in Maths & Physics and, for non-native speakers, an adequate level of English.  You also need a personal Apple device (iPad or Macbook) to enable you download the iBooks for the course - these are then yours to keep for the rest of your flying career. A Class 1 Medical Certificate is highly recommneded before you embark on the expense of an ATPL.
