Course Duration - Cost
We at Griffon Aviation know that you will need to work hard to obtain your Part-FCL PPL (A), but we always try to make this experience as enjoyable as possible. Flying is supposed to be fun!
The majority of our students who come to Cyprus to do their training have limited time to complete the course. The complete PPL (A) course can be completed in as little as 6-8 months. However this requires a full time commitment and a lot of preparation in the theory subjects. Realistically this can be completed in 10-12 months. However, we at Griffon Aviation can tailor the syllabus to suit your personal needs and you might consider taking your training on a part-time basis, i.e. weekly, monthly or as often as time and budget allows.
The cost is based on the minimum training requirements. With full time tuition (theory subjects) it will cost approximately €10.500. Prices are inclusive of VAT, aeroplane, instructor and landing fees where applicable.
Should require any further information related to this course, please do not hesitate to contact us.
