Flying can only take place when the weather conditions are suitable, so it may be necessary to complete the flying training in stages. As a general rule, most flying will take place during the early morning and evenings but in any case, when conditions are suitable. Clothing required: It is essential that you are prepared for the weather conditions. Warm clothes: long pants or ski pants, jacket, gloves, sunglasses and sunscreen. The medical standard required is that equivalent to obtain a motor vehicle licence.
