Privileges & Limitations
When operating as a Private Pilot, you can do all the things as a sport pilot, but you have some extra privileges beyond sport pilot.
- Fly at night
- Fly above 10,000 feet
- Fly as incidental to business rather than sport pilot limitations of no in furtherance of a business.
- Fly into all Class B airports, the biggest and busiest of the 10 airports in the USA, rather than be restricted to the smaller Class B airports.
- Fly out of the country, without prior authorization.
For the complete list of private pilot privileges and limitations, please see 14 CFR § 61.113.
