In western country, it is common to own a private pilot license, then rent or buy an aircraft to fly freely in the sky.

With the regulations in Taiwan getting more open-minded, for both commercial airlines to private aircraft, the sky scape of Taiwan are getting wider and wider.

Now, with the establishment of Apex Flight Academy, we expect more local will get their own private pilot license, through their own hand and eyes to see the beauty of Taiwan.

What's next?

Congratulation for getting your first aerial license, we are sure by now you are an outstanding pilot! 

However, should the weather not at its optimal, such as cloudy condition, a PPL license does not give one the ability to fly!

During the time of low visibility, one would require to have an INSTRUMENT RATING as an add-on to your PPL to allow you utilizing the various instrumentation inside the aircraft to fly, without using visible landmarks on the ground!
