Student comments

My experience with Airwin Portugal Flight Academy is something I highly recommend. It allowed me to do the PPL(A) continuously, facilitating a better retention of knowledge and skills inherent to flying
O aeródromo de Castelo Branco oferece óptimas condições para um aluno piloto, uma vez que está localizado numa região onde a meteorologia favorece o voo VFR. O reduzido tráfego na região é também vantajoso na fase inicial, ajudando o aluno piloto a concentrar-se na técnica de voo que conduz a uma aprendizagem rápida, por exemplo, passando mais tempo com o motor no ar em vez de taxiar a aeronave, bem como fazendo mais circuitos e touch-and-go's.
A excelência de formação da Airwin na sua base em Castelo Branco, aliada à disponibilidade e liberdade de horários que é permitida, foram as chaves para a minha conclusão bem sucedida do curso PPL.
With state-of-the-art aircraft, demanding and highly qualified instructors and an excellent location at the Castelo Branco airfield, I was able to safely practice all flight scenarios. Any future pilot will be more than prepared for any challenges that may come their way in the future.

A well-built and maintained aircraft, flown by a competent and prudent pilot, makes flying as safe or safer than many other forms of transportation.

The minimum requirements are to be 17 years old and to pass a simple Class 1 medical examination if opting for a Commercial Pilot License - CPL(A). For a Private Pilot License - PPL(A), or a Light Aircraft Pilot License - LAPL, as well as being 17 years old you must pass a Class 2 medical examination. Airwin will be pleased to provide you with all the information you need to obtain the right medical certificate, contact us.

No. Flying is actually quite mundane in this regard. In fact, all kinds of people of all ages enjoy the wonderful world of aviation.

Yes, certain vision deficiencies are allowed.

You must get a medical examination from a health center recognized by any EASA aviation authority. How often you are required to go will depend on your age.

You must have enough proficiency in English to be able to follow the lessons. Knowledge in Portuguese, however, is not needed.

Applying for flight training with us is easy. Simply contact us at the academy and we will get you started.

For LAPL and PPL, a limited amount of study is required on your own time. The ATPL demands a serious commitment to complete the required exams.

A PPL typically takes 40-50 hours of flight time. The ATPL will take 165-200 hours of flight time. The time to obtain the license depends on how frequently you fly and your commitment to training.

• Be fully successful in the theoretical part with no delays
• Flying frequently
• Have a good proficiency in the practical part

You can have them done at Austrocontrol or any EASA certified aeronautical organization.
