Skyborne brings Airline Standards to PPL Training

Skyborne Airline Academy

What is a PPL and what are Airline Standards?

Skyborne Airline Academy is launching a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) course that specifically emphasises professional airline standards to help build a foundation for safe, recreational flying.

During the Skyborne PPL training course, trainees will learn about airline philosophy, custom and practice as they complete their first flying licence. For those considering a future role as an airline pilot, the course also acts as a springboard to Skyborne’s UKCAA Modular ATPL programme.

Ian Cooper, Chief Operating Officer, Skyborne, says:

“At Skyborne we can now deliver training to anyone who wants to learn to fly, whether for fun, or as a stepping stone to a new career. Our Private Pilot Licence course provides airline-focused teaching to those who have never flown before to develop their skills and give the best possible base for future flying.

We are proud to offer a range of Modular ATPL courses at our Gloucestershire Airport HQ, with adaptable and flexible training for those wishing to study around existing work and family commitments.”

The Skyborne PPL typically takes 10 weeks to complete, including 100 hours of theoretical knowledge instruction from experienced instructors and 45 hours of Diamond DA40 single-engine piston training at one of the UK’s top General Aviation airports.
