Advantages of training on a motorglider (TMG) We strongly recommend that you do your basic training for your Private Pilot Licence PPL(A) on our Touring Motor-glider.

There are a number of very good reasons for this;

* You get the same PPL(A), training on the motor-glider as you do training for example Cessna 152/172 or any other single engine airplane.

Only difference is the Class rating issued initially with the licence.

* Better basic training. The motor-glider requires a higher standard of piloting skills than SEP (Single engine piston). This will stand to you throughout your future flying whether recreational or professional pilot.

* Lower cost. With us you will save minimum of 30% of your money which you would spend to do your initial PPL or LAPL licence on any other single engine aircraft . The efficient high aspect ratio wing (similar to that of a passenger jet) means a lower fuel cost.

* More fun. The efficient wing gives the TMG a low sink rate  and excellent glide ratio compared to SEP. This allows you to explore some soaring experience which you would never get while you are doing your PPL training . We also charge lower rate when engine is turned off.

Two Class ratings for the price of one! You will do the minimum of 3 hrs flying on our SEP  during the TMG course and this means that you have the opportunity to add the SEP Class rating at minimum additional cost. It is far easier to convert from TMG to SEP than the other way around.

* Hours flown on TMG count towards the experience requirements for maintaining an SEP Class rating and vice versa.
