PPL, CPL, IFR  & C Cat Theory Courses

Pass all your PPL theory exams in 2 weeks, and CPL in 6 weeks!


In conjunction with the North Shore Aero Club we are running a 2 week PPL Course  and 6 weeks of CPL theory courses. This covers all six exams. No need to study for months on end taking up valuable flying and leisure time. Cover all exams  in one big hit, then you're free to concentrate on the fun part - flying!

Many students struggle to find the time in their busy schedules to knuckle down to study. Our two and six week courses have been designed to give you as much information as you will need to pass the ASL exams. For PPL: three subjects will be covered each week, for CPL: one subject per week. You will need to book yourself into the exams, we suggest you book straight away whilst its still fresh or you may want to give yourself further study time giving you flexibility dependent on learning ability and available time frame.
