Choosing the Best Flight School in Spain for Your Pilot Training

Making the Right Decision

If you’ve decided to become a private pilot, selecting the perfect flight school is a crucial first step. Spain, with its excellent climate and superb training facilities, is an ideal place for flight training. Here’s what you need to know to make the best choice for your pilot training.

Spain’s Advantage in Flight Training

Spain’s warm and sunny weather provides splendid flying conditions almost all year round. This means more flying hours and a smoother, more consistent learning experience. When choosing a flight school, be sure to consider the location and local weather to ensure the best training environment.

Starting Your Private Pilot Licence Training

Your journey to getting a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) includes several important steps:

  1. Medical Examination: First, get a medical examination in your home country to make sure you’re fit to fly.
  2. Theoretical Knowledge Training: Sign up for a comprehensive theoretical knowledge course and pass the written exam from the aviation authorities.
  3. Practical Training: Complete your practical flight training, which leads to a final skills test and ultimately, your PPL.

Study from Home

If you prefer to complete your theoretical knowledge training from home, our online theory course is perfect for you. It covers everything needed to pass the written exam and is thorough and up-to-date. By dedicating around fifteen hours per week, you’ll be ready for the written examination within 3 to 4 months.

So do the theory first from home and then take your time to find the optimum flight training provider.

    Moving to Flight Training

    Once you’ve passed your theoretical knowledge exam, it’s time to move on to practical flight training. This is where you apply what you’ve learned and develop your skills in the cockpit. Spain has many excellent flying schools to complete your training, including some that also hold the written exams.

    I can recommend both Corflight School in Córdoba and Aerodynamics in Malaga. I have myself taken courses there, and I am pleased with them.
