12-Week FAA PPL Preparatory Programme (13 Years Min Age, Part-Time)
UPDATED 23 MARCH 2020: Due to the recent Covid-19 virus situation, both ground school and flight simulator training will be conducted on a 1-to-1 basis instead of classroom style. To help you ace your ground school subjects, you will be provided with our full set of ground school video recording. This will allow you to progress through ground school on a self-paced basis. In addition, we are offering a special promo price of S$3,995 (S$3,000 discount off our published rates of S$6,995. Offer valid till end of Phase 2). All interested candidates will also enjoy a FREE 60-Minute Flight Assessment in our full-motion flight simulator. 12-Months Interest-Free Instalment Payment Plan available for Singapore Credit Card holders.
Candidates who wish to proceed to Phase 2 - Flying Phase during this period (where overseas travel is limited) may wish to consider enrolling with Selatar Flying Club based in Singapore after completing our 12-week programme. This Phase 1 - FlightSchool.sg & Phase 2 - Seletar Flying Club route is still more cost-effective as it costs S$150 in our full-motion flight simulator versus S$550 in the aircraft (excluding local landing fees of $37.50 per landing). The more proficient you are training in our full-motion flight simulator, the less time (and money) you need to spend in the aircraft. You will however need to join Seletar Flying Club as an Ordinary Member, obtain your Singapore Student Pilot License and learn to fly on a Singapore-registered aircraft. The good news is flying hours clocked locally may be recognised if you choose to embark on your US Private Pilot License when overseas travel becomes less restricted.
The 3rd most cost-effective option is simply to complete your Phase 1 - 12-Week Preparatory Programme with FlightSchool.sg and patiently wait for restricted travel to the US be lifted. Meanwhile, book our full-motion flight simulator to maintain your flying proficiency, or proceed to train with us for your instrument rating!

The goal of this program is to allow a Private Pilot License (PPL) candidate to prepare for the FAA PPL by undergoing once-a-week ground-school classes (3 hours per session) and flight sim training classes (1 hour per session) over a 12 week period. At the end of 12 weeks, and upon passing our internal ground and flight assessment tests, the PPL candidate will be able to proceed to Phase II of the training in the USA. Phase II should take no more than 30 days in total.
FAA PPL Requirements:
– At least 17 years of age (at the time of the flight test)
– English proficient (can speak, read and write)
– Not colour blind
– Able to pass the FAA Class-3 Medical exam
Regarding age limitation, the minimum age to take the FAA PPL written and practical tests is 17 years old. In order to fly solo in an aircraft, the student pilot needs to be at least 16 years of age. There is no maximum age limit to take the FAA PPL written and practical tests. However, note that there is no minimum age to commence ground and flight training. So even children (we recommend at least 13 years of age can start to learn to fly!).
Also note that there are no minimum educational requirements to earn a FAA PPL. However, educational requirements are typically imposed by the airlines and corporate charter companies.
In order to pass the FAA PPL Class-3 Medical Exam, here’s the official requirement as per the Code of Federal Regulations §67.303:
(a) Distant visual acuity of 20/40 or better in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses. If corrective lenses (spectacles or contact lenses) are necessary for 20/40 vision, the person may be eligible only on the condition that corrective lenses are worn while exercising the privileges of an airman certificate.
(b) Near vision of 20/40 or better, Snellen equivalent, at 16 inches in each eye separately, with or without corrective lenses.
(c) Ability to perceive those colors necessary for the safe performance of airman duties.
(d) No acute or chronic pathological condition of either eye or adnexa that interferes with the proper function of an eye, that may reasonably be expected to progress to that degree, or that may reasonably be expected to be aggravated by flying.
14-Day Accelerated FAA PPL Preparatory Programme (17 Years Min Age, Full-Time)
Similar in scope with our 12 week part-time programme above, but delivered on a 14-day full-time timetable. The Private Pilot License (PPL) candidate prepares for the FAA PPL by undergoing daily ground-school classes (3 hours per session) and flight sim training classes (1-2 hour per session) over a 14 day period. At the end of two weeks, and upon passing our internal ground and flight assessment tests, the PPL candidate will be able to proceed to Phase II of the training in the USA. Phase II should take no more than 25 days in total.
5-Hour FFA PPL Preparatory Simulator Package (No Age Limit, Part-Time, Pay-As-You-Go)
