A part of theoretical training is the course of radio operators of aircraft stations.

We provide Ultralight Aircraft Training and offer Ultralight Pilot Licence (UPL) for all, upon successful completion of training on Weight Shift or 3-Axis Aircrafts. Training can be carried out entirely on our own aircrafts from our own private training airfield at Nong Prue Airfield, Pattaya.

Our courses are designed in accordance with Civil Aviation Rules and Requirements and are approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand. Accommodation (budget hotels/tented camps) is available if required. Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand will issue UPL Licence.

The ground courses of 15 hours are available for you to be able to complete your full pilot certificate and cover every aspect of flying. We offer a complete package and the course can be tailored to suit your requirements. From having a trial flight, conversion course, ground tuition, exams, general flying test, radio course and certificate and cross country endorsement, you can choose what you like (one or more).

We offer a modern, fully certified training facility, which includes:
• The latest model, fully certified and meticulously maintained aircraft
• Clean and security monitored hangar
• Air-conditioned classrooms
• 450 meters private airstrips for training

TRAINING REQUIREMENTS:
To be able to obtain a pilot certificate for an Ultralight the student must be over the age of 17, in good health (i.e. Class 4 medical)

TRAINING THEORY:
We use the Quicksilver Ultralight for 3-axis training. For Gyro training we use Magni and Auto Gyro models, which are known for their ease of handling and simplicity. This is the same way we approach our theory training. We provide all of the theory required to obtain your pilots certificate and a considerable amount of time to give you the confidence to fly safely

TRAINING TIMES:
The School operates mainly every day, depending upon the weather conditions. Actual course times vary with each student; the minimum legal requirement is that each student must complete 18 hours of flight tuition of which 3 hours must be cross country. It is not necessary that everyone may achieve a pilot certificate in 18 hours, as this is usually not the case. 20 – 30 hours training is required for most students to achieve the required proficiency.

After completing the training with us, we will issue Club’s Certificate and provide the recommendation letter for issuing Ultralight Pilot Licence to Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand, CAAT.
