Co-Pilot Safety Course

The AOPA Flying Companion’s course has been constructed to enable those who fly regularly with a Private Pilot Licence (PPL) holder to be more involved in the flights and, therefore, more confident when flying as passengers.

Although the course does not itself lead to a pilot’s licence, it must be conducted by a qualified Flight Instructor. It is appreciated that some flying companions may wish to continue training for their PPL and the hours flown on the course may be counted towards that qualification. However, it should be noted that the syllabus is an abridged version of the early flight exercises and ground studies for the PPL and only covers parts of eh training requirements for the JAR PPL.

Similarly, those wishing to assist with the operation of the radio on a private flight would need to hold a Radiotelephony Licence and their instructor will be able to advise how to achieve this.

The course consists of a minimum of eight hours flight training with a qualified Flight Instructor.
