Share the costs with passengers
Become an instructor
Start CPL training
By earning a private pilot license, you can legally navigate a small aircraft by yourself. Many people do it to be able to fly for recreational purposes, sports reasons, or to save time and avoid traffic jams. Others wish to undertake aviation more seriously but choose PPL as their starting point. Whether you belong to the first or the second group, getting your hands on the PPL is a smart choice.
If you own or have rented an EASA-registered airplane, there are no limitations on where you can fly. However, it is necessary to keep in mind the customs and immigration requirements of different countries before entering their airspace. How about your favorite place in Europe, North America, or maybe the Caribbean?
Share the expenses
Although you cannot be compensated or paid to fly, you can share the expenses with your passengers, reducing your financial burden. According to EASA and national civil aviation authorities, direct flight fees, such as fuel, rental fees, airfield charges, etc., can be shared between a maximum of six people on board, the pilot included.
Become an instructor
You may consider earning your flight instructor certification (FI) as your aviation career progresses, especially if you like sharing your knowledge. As a certificated flight instructor, you can build flight experience quickly to meet airline and corporate hiring minimums.
Next goal – commercial pilot
You may treat your Private Pilot License as the first milestone on the road to becoming an airline pilot. More time and financial resources are required to obtain a CPL, so for those who would like to test the waters before committing, PPL is a great option. If you join the CPL Modular program later on, which typically starts with PPL, you can skip this already familiar part and begin with the next course in the curriculum.
