It is not difficult to learn to fly, it just requires commitment and plently of enthusiasm. If you decide to continue training you will become proficient in a short time.

Trial Flight

Your first steps towards learning to fly with Limerick Flying Club is to take a trial flight. It will last about thirty minutes and will give you an excellent introduction to flying. You will experience the thrills of flight, flying with one of our competent and experienced instructors.

Private Pilot Licence

In accordance with Joint Aviation Authority (JAA), you will require a minimum of 45 hours flying which will include both basic and advanced tuition. The manoeuvres which you will learn are, take-off, landing, climbing, descending and turning, most of which are perfected in the training area and in circuit practice. Stalls and emergency landing practice are conducted in the training area. Your first solo is a really big day. Most students go solo after 10-15 hours instruction. Cross country and navigation training followed by solo cross country flying finishes off the course. A medical by an approved examiner will be required for the issue of a licence. Contact us for more information.

Ground School

There is also a ground study course to complete and there are written examinations in Aviation Law, Navigation, Meteorology, Theory of Flight and Human Performance. We conduct a series of night classes for all those subjects during the winter months.
