I recently made a dream come true by moving to Thailand, and I am about to make another life-long dream come true as well: I am starting the groundschool for my private pilot's licence on October 1st!
I will be studying and later flying at BangPhra Airfield, between Bangkok and Pattaya. This field has a 900-metre paved runway. The basic training will be on a Cessna C150 and moving on to the C172. The club also has Cherokees, Trinidads, Mooneys and... a PZL-104 Wilga taildragger.
The total cost of the PPL course will be around 4000 euros, which is much, much less than what it would cost in Europe.
Whom of you A.net members has a PPL? Would you like to share any experiences and/or tips regarding the training? Many thanks!
