As part of the licence, there are a set of theoretical exams, all of which are multiple choice with a pass rate of 75%.
The exams required for a PPL(A)
- Air Law
- Operational Procedures
- Principles of Flight
- Human Performance and Limitations
- Aircraft General Knowledge
- Flight Planning and Performance
These exams must be taken in 6 exam sessions, an exam session for the PPL exams are defined as a period of 10 days. All exams must be taken within an 18 month period from the end of the month you took your first exam.
A final exam is your Radio Telephony Test, this is a practical skills test usually done towards the end of your training, and authorizes you to operate an Aircraft Radio Station on a UK registered aircraft.
I’ll keep this page updated with more information as and when I get it.
