The Private Pilot Ground School course is the first step into a career in aviation. Students will also be required to complete flight training prior to gaining their Private Pilot Licence. With a Private Pilot Licence, you will not be able to fly for reward, meaning you will not be able to obtain employment with that licence. If you want to be a pilot as a career, you would have to further your training by receiving your Commercial Pilot Licence. Other career options in aviation and aerospace include air traffic control, aircraft design and engineering, airport operations, aircraft maintenance engineer, and many more.
