What is a Private Pilot License?
The Private Pilot Certificate, internationally referred to as the Private Pilot License (PPL), is your first goal as a pilot. The PPL provides foundational knowledge and skills for all future aircraft pilot training. As a Private Pilot, you can fly an airplane day and night in visual flight conditions. In fact, you can even carry passengers, such as friends, family, and co-workers. You cannot fly for paid compensation or hire. However, you can share the operating expenses with your passengers. The PPL is your foundation course on a pathway to an airline pilot career.

Private Pilot License Course Overview
The Private Pilot course is the first course taken by new student pilots. Mongolian Aviation Academy values the importance of a strong foundation. Therefore, we provide a blended instructional approach that includes our ground school and aviation skill development. Students learn basic aerodynamics and MCAA regulations. Furthermore, you learn about aircraft weight balance and aircraft performance. You learn this in the classroom and during flight simulator training. Flight lessons within the PPL course include aircraft maneuvers and procedures required for your solo flight. You’ll also conduct a daytime cross-country flight. As an MCAA-rated flight school, our training ensures ACS (Airman Certification Standards) for all students.
Once you complete the Private Pilot course, you’ll have extensive aeronautical experience. As a result, you can apply for your MCAA Private Pilot Certificate (PPL). This is the first step to becoming a Professional Pilot.
All Private Pilot training flights are conducted in new Technological Advanced Aircraft (TAA). Furthermore, our aircraft are equipped with WAAS-capable instrument-certified GPS. We are proud to offer pilot training using Cessna 172s. This is one of the safest aircraft ever built.
