Courses & Licenses

Courses

Teaching to fly: our club is the only flying association in Albania who has a real flying school, recognized by APPI. We have a great experience in teaching both theoretical and practical questions to anyone who want to begin this sport. Learning is step by step, as a combination of continuous practice in the ground, explaining theoretical books, analyzing different concrete questions in videos etc. A minimum of 7 intensive learning days is necessary for a beginner. A person should be at least 16 years to get enrolled in the school with parental permission. First 3-5 flights will be under survey of the instructors and under radio communication. A possible tandem flight is possible before the solo flight. Flying is not an opinion, an illusion or a beautiful quantity of words, but a real reality! We work in the safe side of flying and we consider this sport in a serious way. It’s not for people thinking they are heroes or braves enough. It’s not an extreme sport. It’s really safe if you do things in calm, rational and pleasure way, without going against nature rules, weather conditions, egoistic or collective pressure.
– We are the only flying association in Albania to deliver International Flying License APPI. The student must pass both theoretical and practical exams and a minimum of 20 flights under survey to get the first flying license.
– We can teach in Albanian, English, French and Italian languages.
