Having your Private Pilot Certificate allows you to join the friendly skies for recreation and personal travel. You can take your family on a weekend trip or to the beach for a quick lunch. Your friends can join for a joy ride to take in the views that you can only get in the air.
A Private Pilot Certificate allows you to fly in VFR conditions (Visual Flight Rules). This means you can fly in good weather, high visibility, and below the cloud cover. To fly in cloudy weather conditions, you may consider earning your instrument rating which allows you to fly in IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) conditions.
