Flight log

The flight training consists of 31 lessons (30 lessons + final check). Most lessons are 3 hours with 30-90 minutes of flying but some lessons are longer – e.g. some og the navigation flights and final check. For each lesson there is a plan of both theoretical subjects and practical exercises that all must be completed before continuing with the next lesson.
