PPL

The Private Pilot Licence (PPL) entitles the pilot to fly an aircraft in visual conditions and is the perfect licence for those wanting to fly as a serious hobby or for anyone looking to become a commercial pilot.

PRIVATE PILOTS LICENCE

LAPL

 If your intention is to fly with a maximum of three passengers within Europe then the LAPL(A) might be the answer for you, requiring fewer hours of practical training and less stringent medical checks than a full PPL.

LIGHT AIRCRAFT PILOT’S LICENCE

PPL (G)

One of the most economical ways to fly, achieving the PPL(G) opens the door to this versatile type of aircraft. Fast, efficient, with great load carrying ability and offers incredible high wind wind/cross-wind capability. Requiring fewer hours of practical training and less stringent medical checks than a full PPL.

There is currently no EU/EASA/UK agreement in place so the licence can only be used on UK-registered gyroplanes inside UK airspace, unless you have an agreement with the aviation authorities in another country which will allow you to fly in that country’s airspace

GYROPLANE PILOT’S LICENCE

INSTRUMENT RATING (RESTRICTED)

The IR(R) is a national rating that can be added to a UK issued licence, enhancing the privileges and instrument flying skills of a PPL holder enabling flights in conditions below the minima for a PPL holder.
