The PPL – Private Pilot Licence, is no other than a document like the driving license, which entitles its holder to carry out “non-revenue” flights.

Namely, the holder of this document is permitted to fly freely his/her own or a rented helicopter, within the borders of Hungary, in compliance with the current regulations, and visual flight rules. (With the possession of a PPL and an English radiotelephony-license international flights can be carried out as well.)

The PPL is the first step that one has to take on the long road to become a professional pilot.
