The Private Pilot License allows you to be Pilot in Command (PIC) of an aircraft and to carry passengers. You will be able to make all decisions pertaining to planning and executing a flight, during daylight hours, and in clear weather. To fly at night and in cloudy conditions you will need additional qualifications that we call ratings. With a Private Pilot License you may not, however, receive remuneration for your flying activities. This licence is required even if your ultimate goal is to become a Commercial Pilot, as it allows you to accumulate the relevant experience that is essential for any advanced qualifications.
