FLIGHT TRAINING

GROUND SCHOOL & FLIGHT INSTRUCTION
The Thai Flying Club offers PPL (private pilot) flying courses with a FREE GROUNDSCHOOL. To date, the club has trained and certified many Thai and Foreign students. The club can also help you apply to validate your foreign pilots license for flying in Thailand. The flying course is 60 flight hours and the total cost of learning to fly is about 400,000 Baht. To obtain your Thai PPL, you must 1. CKrittika Toumtongomplete an aviation medical examination (one day in Bangkok Hospital), 2. Join the club (10,000 Baht), 3. Submit an application for SPL (200 Baht), 4. Study in the TFC FREE Groundschool (to receive a letter from TFC), 5. Log 60 hours of flight time, and then you can sit the DCA written exams (given once every 3 months) and take a DCA checkride. The ground school in Bang Phra is FREE for everyone, and you can join anytime you want. The DCA has to do a background check on SPL applicants, so it can take 2-3 months to receive your SPL. Start the process early and begin your groundschool studies, so that your SPL will be ready when you are ready to fly. CONGRATULATIONS to Thailand for this great improvement (it used to take 7 months for foreigners to obtain a SPL). Students can only begin to log hours in their logbook after they have received their SPL. If you think you want to learn to fly, then begin this process immediately, so that you can start flying as soon as your SPL is ready. The club charges an hourly rental rate for the airplane (rates vary with type of plane) and the club charges an hourly fee for instructors (see plane and instructor rates). A prospective student may solo with consent of the instructor (usually after 12-20 hours, depending on frequency of flying) after he has his SPL.
