The PPL flight training syllabus is divided up into 18 exercises that must be completed and mastered to the industry standard before you are allowed to test for your PPL (Private Pilots License).
Some of the exercises will be combined together in a single lesson, others will be spread out over several lessons, while the rest will be built on over consecutive lessons. Learning about flying, like cleaning a house, is a process. It never really ends!
There are a number of flight briefings you will receive during your "ab initio" PPL (private pilot license) flight training. Below is a list of the flight briefings and air exercises you will be doing.
Although you will receive a flight briefing before every flight, it can speed up your training if you read up on the exercise beforehand.
