      My brother has dreamt of working as a pilot ever since he was a kid, so he’s working hard to pursue that goal soon by looking for programs to take that can help him get a private pilot license soon. Thank you for explaining to us that a PPL is a qualification that allows the holder to fly an aircraft since this proves that he has undergone the proper training for it. I’ll keep this in mind while I help my brother find a good private pilot program to choose soon.
