Getting A PPL

Sat Mar 30, 2002 1:48 pm

Which is the best (and cheapest) place to get a Private Pilots License? Nothing too fancy (like no Jet qualification), just to be able to fly a single engine piston. ANd will I be able to complete my certification (60 hrs in India) and all req. exams in a month or 2 months?

I hear UK is pretty good for this, but is it affordable? And how do Canada, Australia and the US figure in this aspect?

People from the UK often come to the US because it is significantly cheaper.
When in doubt, one B pump off

The US is much cheaper and the weather is a lot better. You should be able to do everything in 3-4 weeks, but its hard work within that time.

Buy a magazine such as 'pilot' (if you can get it in India)and see all of the adverts for schools in the US, Florida is a good place to learn.
