KMPP Explained

The most common question we are asked by prospective pilots is “how much will it cost me to get my licence”.

You could be forgiven for thinking it is more expensive than it really is – most people think the same. The reality however is that for most students it is actually, a lot less than you imagine for an investment that will last a lifetime and provide you with a skill that, quite literally, opens up a whole new world of adventure.

To make it even more affordable, we have created the “Kuki Monthly Pilot Programme”, packaging all the elements of what is needed in to a bespoke and affordable plan that truly makes flying a possibility for everyone.

How many hours training are needed? Whilst there is a minimum of 45 hours needed to take your PPL test, the reality is that most students take around 55-60 hours to get to the stage where they will pass. Not every school will be as honest as we are with that statement, but it is true and it is our experience of over 20 years training pilots. Honesty is always the best policy.

The good news is, we have a 100% pass and safety record !!

What Happens After I Have Qualified? After you have successfully passed your test and your new world as a pilot opens up, you will most likely want to start taking your family and friends flying in one of our self-fly hire aircraft, which are available 7 days a week.

By carrying on paying a monthly amount that you can afford in to your flying account, you will have direct access to the Kuki fleet available for you to take to the skies whenever your heart desires. If you would like more information, please download our PPL brochure below:
