How to become a motor pilot on the Wasserkuppe

Already at the age of 16 you can complete your flight training to become a private pilot license (PPL-A) or LAPL (A) with the OK from the flight doctor.

PPL-A license you will be authorized to fly single-engine aircraft under visual flight conditions.

But the possibilities in motorized aviation are not exhausted: You can acquire additional authorizations for controlled visual flight or for towing gliders ... Or how about the alternative ultralight?

Even after acquiring the license, our motor planes are of course still available for charter.

Many pilots of commercial airliners started out very small with the acquisition of a private pilot license - and you could be the next one!
