OUR TRAINING COURSES

The below course is for individuals looking to get a Private Pilot License for pleasure flying: 

  • PPL

    Private Pilot License

    PPL Theoretical Training (100 hrs) with DENTO flight school in Cyprus: The purpose of the theoretical training is to teach the syllabus for the nine theoretical subjects and to pass the relevant in-house exams. For this purpose, “Dento” has created its own e-learning platform which allows online learning, followed by a minimum of 2 days classroom review and then relevant in-house exams.

    PPL Flight Training (45 hrs): Once a minimum level of theoretical training is completed, the students could commence flight training congruently with their theoretical training.

    Note: Prior to the 1st solo, all students should obtain a Class I Medical. Additionally, all trainees should demonstrate at least an Operational Level of English Language Proficiency (ELP) before their PPL skill test.

Our modular course structore for individuals looking to start their aviation career. The said modular course is referred to as AB-Initio Pilot training course and includes the following:
