PRIVATE PILOTS LICENCE

EASA LAPL

The Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence has more restrictions than a full Private Pilot Licence (PPL) but if your intention is to fly with a maximum of three passengers within Europe then the LAPL(A) might be the answer for you. The licence requires fewer hours of practical training and less stringent medical checks.
