This is one of two parts required to apply to the IAA for a Specific Operating Permission (SOP) and Pilot Competency Certificate (PCC). The second part is the flight test. In all cases, the flight test is organised at a time which is convenient to you. If booked together there is a €50 discount.
After completing groundschool, students progress to flight testing, which can be organised with one of our two Irish Aviation Authority approved examiners.
This course is completed when your pilot licence or operator permission expires after two years. It is a half day course and the cost is €500 inclusive of the flight test.
NB: Please note that to issue you with a Pilot Competency Certificate (PCC) & Specific Operating Permission (SOP) the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) require that you hold insurance cover for your operation. This will cost approximately €450 to €800+, depending on the size and scale of your operations. They will charge €148 for the processing of each application (total €296).
