PPL Groundschool Courses

The National Flight Centre Private Pilots Licence (PPL) Ground School course is second to none. Our Subject Matter experts will guide you through the process and help you prepare for the four PPL exams.

Our PPL Ground School courses are conducted regularly and are normally run over four weekends between the hours of 09:30 - 17:30 and are scheduled to be completed in time for the IAA exams. The exams are run by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA), and are held every two months, with a minimum class size of 4 students. Further information on examinations administered by the IAA can be found here.

Our Intensive PPL Ground school course costs €650.00 per student.

Course fee includes 100 hours of instruction. This includes 65 hours of classroom lectures, 35 hours of Computer Based Training (moodle), mock PPL(A) exams and admin fees.

Students should be aware that the course requires a set of AFE PPL(A) manuals, a VFR chart of Ireland scale 1:500000, a CRP-1, a square protractor and a nautical mile ruler and that these materials are not included in the course fee.
