Sailplane Pilot License - SPL

Get to know the unforgettable freedom of gliding

Required Documents:

  • Pilot medical examination by a specially authorized physician. A list of all doctors in Austria can be found on the homepage of the Austrian Aero-Club. Cost between € 50,00 and € 100,00. (Usually, glasses / contact lenses are no obstacle to flight training).
  • Original Police certificate (extract from the criminal record): Not older than 6 months!

Min. age of 15 years

You’ll get the certificate at the age of 16 after successful theoretical and practical examination.

The theoretical training is held by our gliding instructors in the classroom. The following elements are taught:

  • General aviation knowledge
  • Avionic knowledge
  • Behavioral measures in special cases
  • Aerodynamic
  • Meteorology
  • Geographics and Navigation
  • Air Law
  • First Aid
  • Radio (BFZ)

The practical training starts on board of an 2-seater glider with a certified glider instructor. Until the solo flight around 40 double tax flights are required. The flight order for the first solo flight issued at the discretion of the flight instructor. This forms one of the most unforgettable highlights of a flying experience.
 
The second part of the training includes a similar number of further solo and introductory flights.

This results in a number of about 70 to 80 flights to the final exmination. Due to the fact that each student should reasonably not have more than ten launches per day of flight (5 in the morning / 5 in the afternoon), and the fact that gliding is a weather-dependent outdoor sport, the time required is 4 to 5 months for the spring course.
