Hour building is the fun bit, after you have gained your PPL & Night rating before you progress further and work towards your CPL (Commercial Pilots License) you must build up 100 hours as PIC (Pilot in Command) of an aircraft. this can be done in an aircraft of your choice which you have been checked out on. At the Ulster Flying Club we offer great hourly rates on our 2 seat Cessna 152s which are the perfect aircraft for building up time in command and cost less than more expensive Cesssna 172’s, although you are welcome to build your hours in our 172s!
Structured Hour Building
We do offer a structured hour building programme which will allow you to fly primarily for leisure purposes but with regular instructor checks to maintain the very highest standard of airmanship. Have a chat with one of our excellent instructors to discuss this further.PREV: Step 2 – Night Rating NEXT: Step 4 – ATPL Theory
