The definition of a Private Pilot is someone who flies for pleasure or personal business purposes. This means that you can be in command of an airplane for any non-commercial venture that you hold a rating for, like a Cessna 172 for example. One advantage of earing your Private Pilot’s License is that you may fly anytime you want, day or night, regulations permitting, and as long as the weather conditions allow you to fly by VFR (Visual Flight Rules). Another benefit if being able to fly with passengers. What better way to share the miracle of flight than to experience it with family or friends!
