PPL Virtual?

PPL Virtual, just like a regular PPL, takes you from little or no flying experience to a fully qualified private pilot in 7 months! You will study theory remotely via a dedicated virtual platform.

Study from anywhere

You can study PPL virtually, regardless of the country you are from. Since there is no requirement to travel anywhere (except for the CAA exams part), you can reduce your expenses considerably by not paying for accommodation and living in a foreign country.

EASA standard real-time classes

To make things clear, virtual theory at BAA Training is not the same as „self-study.“ The ground lessons are delivered every workday in real time by professional and well-trained lecturers whose teaching methods fully comply with EASA regulations and standards. The classes are not recorded, but attendance is compulsory to maintain 80% of the required attendance rate.

Maintain your study/life balance

Virtual PPL theory takes only 3-4 hours of your time per day, unlike in-class learning, which takes 5-6 hours per day. It gives you the flexibility to plan your day, maintain your study/life balance and have sufficient time left for a part-time job, your hobbies, family and friends.

Innovative virtual classroom

The virtual classroom with AI integration offers an immersive and intuitive environment. You can attend classes there, access interactive and regularly updated EASA training materials containing stunning imagery and 3D models, complete progress tests and school examinations, use a discussion board and talk to peers.

Does virtual training entail self-study or instructor-led lessons?

It is instructor-led pilot training via the virtual platform with many collaboration tools that support training in an automated and more scalable format. You can expect high-quality, comprehensive learning under EASA standard programs while being guided by professional instructors. Quality-wise, virtual training is no different from classroom-based sessions. On the contrary, it might captivate learners even more because of the enhanced interactivity it offers.

“I studied PPL program and then continued ATPL Theory. My childhood dream was to study at BAA Training. I remember looking, scrolling through BAA Training's website, saw all of the students, happy faces, always wanted to be one of them. I’m still working to become an airline pilot. I’m very happy that I was/I\’m a part of BAA Training. I’m very happy with the theoretical and practical training that I had professional instructors.”
