EASA Private Pilot License

The very first hours of your flight training will be the making of a safe and proficient Private Pilot. It is crucial that during the early stages of instruction, strict adherence to safe and disciplined flight training practices are maintained. These are our standard practices at American Aviation Academy. Once you make your first solo flight, you will surely know why you chose to be an aviator!
This EASA PPL program can be completed in as little as 5 weeks!
You can expect well over 300 days of good VFR conditions here in San Diego.  This helps accelerate our training programs, and save you both time and money.
