Private Pilot licence (Aeroplane) Theory (PPLA)

General Information

The private pilot licence theory examination is without doubt a daunting experience for most pilots.
It's the first time we are introduced to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority CyberExams system and it's hard to know what to expect. Our PPLA practice exams have been written with these concerns in mind. By the time you sit the real thing you will be thoroughly prepared and know exactly what to expect.

Exam Syllabus

The exam will test your knowledge of the 7 aviation subjects (aerodynamics, aircraft general knowledge, meteorology, air law, performance, navigation and human factors) to the PPL(A) standards listed in the Part 61 Manual of Standards of Aeronautical Knowledge.
