The National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) is a national licence that is not recognised outside the United Kingdom.

It entitles pilots to fly "simple single-engine aircraft" with a maximum of three passengers within the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands. Flight in poor weather and at night or in multi-engine aircraft is not permitted.

The Course for the NPPL includes a minimum of 32 hours flying (excluding the Navigation Skills Test and General Flying Test).


The NPPL may have limitations depending on your future flying aspirations. Please contact us to discuss whether or not the NPPL course is right for you.
