With a private pilot certificate, you can legally fly from place to place in a single engine airplane. Think of it as a passport to anywhere you want to be (weather permitting)! There are also a few guidelines to follow pertaining to the privileges and limitations of the certificate, but ultimately, this is the certification to seek for the ability to fly when you want, where you want.
