Become a pilot

All the calculations show it can’t work. There’s only one thing to do: make it work!

Pierre Georges Latécoère

Have you ever dreamed of flying?

Live your dreams… learn to fly !

Our aeroclub offers perfect conditions for learning how to fly an aeroplane:

  • qualified instructors readily available,
  • competitive rates,
  • 5 aircrafts of different types, all well proven models,
  • an excellent environment at the aeroport of Limoges-Bellgarde : a long runway, the extra safety of air traffic control and beautiful countryside views from the air.

Learning to become a fully qualified pilot follows a number of steps.

The Trial Flight

Your first contact with an aircraft is often in the form of a Trial Flight or Introductory Lesson which will give you an opportunity to discover the fabulous sensation of flying.

Pilots’ Licences

And, later, the full training to become a qualified pilot, which begins with the Brevet de Base (BB), and which is often followed by the Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL) or a Private Pilot Licence (PPL). These are the licences held by the majority of private pilots and which enable you to fully enjoy the pleasures of flying.

Going Further

Later, you can further develop your skills and obtain additional qualifications, such as flying at night.

Instrument Flying (IFR)

Finally, the ultimate stage for a private pilot is to obtain the Instrument Rating (IFR). This enables you to pilot an aeroplane in almost all weather conditions. You can receive instrument flying instruction in our club. This is unusual. There are not many aeroclubs which can provide this instruction!
