The Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (LAPL) is a basic licence for the leisure pilot, which can also be used to progress to more advanced flying ratings or qualifications. This licence is regulated by EASA meaning that the licence is recognised throughout Europe and in some other states around the world.
The LAPL entitles a pilot to fly an aeroplane of up to 2000kg, carrying up to three passengers, in daylight and in ‘visual’ weather conditions - that is weather good enough to control and navigate the aircraft by external reference.
The Course for the LAPL includes a minimum of 32 hours flying (including the final flying skills test).
The LAPL may have limitations depending on your future flying aspirations. Please contact us to discuss whether or not the LAPL course is right for you.
