OUR SCHOOL

WHAT ALLOWS ME TO DO THIS LICENSE?

The U.L.M. pilot license allows you to be a pilot of ultralight aircraft (aircraft up to 450kg) and, with this particular qualification, the U.L.M. of Center of Gravity Displacement (DCG).

This license is in the category of sports aviation and therefore allows leisure (private) flight. It is a very good option for all those who want to have fun flying and / or start their aeronautical career at a very affordable price.

COURSE STRUCTURE

The course is divided into two parts: theoretical program and flight practices. These two will be developed in parallel and respecting the rhythm of each. However, the official exam will be first the theoretical one and then the practical one. These will be carried out once the student is fully prepared and has the optimal knowledge to be able to fly alone and become a pilot.

All classes (theoretical and practical) will be held from Wednesday to Sunday to be agreed according to the availability of the student and the school.
