Very good point made about Permit aircraft offering much cheaper flying than certified aircraft, but you can fly both on a PPL, and get much better privileges. It is fitted with a ballistic parachute recovery system and uses Mogas. It will have a full glass panel with backup analogue instruments, a Mode S Transponder and 8. The general handling phase culminates in the aerodrome circuit and eventually the first solo exercise. Financially, not much difference to me.

National Private Pilot Licence

A There are a number of BGA sites approved for training. A No, the application fee is the same, regardless of the number of ratings applied for at the same time. I can also appreciate the medical aspect. Going abroad is one of the things that makes flying really worth while. Additional information can be found in CAP The currency issue is you only require 6 hours ayear for NPPL and the license is for life similar to your car license making it cheaper to keep it current.

Why we cannot have the class 3 back beats me – the FAA has thousands and thousands of pilots with class 3’s and they can fly IR, instruct and do many other types of flying with only a class 3 safely! A Ratings that have not been revalidated before their expiry date cannot be revalidated after it.


NPPL: national private pilot licence | UK Civil Aviation Authority

NPPL holders can be licensed to fly different types of aircraft. Assuming a similar aircraft and thus the need for similar currency. In practice agreements have been reached to give access to nppp of Europe without having to get specific permission.

Of those 32 hours, 22 hours must be dual instruction to include at least 1 hour of instrument appreciation and 10 hours solo of which 4 hours must be on cross country exercises. In my experience people are not saving much on the hours as they end up doing pretty much the same as everone doing the straight PPL anyway.


Financially, not much difference to me. Flights must be conducted according to Visual Flight Rules i. Q If I apply for more than one rating on the one application, do I have to pay more? Only 5 hrs more for JAR – and that’s only if you qualify in the minimum time – so, no real difference.

Because the licence does not meet the required minimum nppll for training internationally, it is not recognised for flights abroad, although there is a General Exemption which permits flight within the Channel Islands and now France subject to a Flight Instructor Endorsement. Before I move this from Wannabes, I should correct Broomstick on one error hppl has made.

I am delighted to be able to let everyone know that Marcus Palmer, our CFI is recovering well and is expected to be able to resume flying in August. A Anywhere between 2 to 6 weeks. The NPPL can only be used on UK-registered aircraft inside UK airspace, unless you have an agreement with the aviation authorities in another country which will allow nplp to fly in that country’s airspace. For the people nppll just want to fly in UK – good luck to you.


Cheap flying and aerobatics as well. Work is still continuing on several aspects of the above, but progress is slow. The Sandtoft Flying School C42 has finally arrived at the distributers in the UK and is being fitted with its avionic equipment.

No further questions, your honour. If your SEP rating lapses and you wish to continue to fly microlights you should apply for a NPPL with a microlight class rating attached. In essence, you would have non-professional enthusiasts, teaching other enthusiasts; in much the same way as the inspector system works for building a permit aircraft, or the BGA train pilots now.

IOS54,what a load of rubbish.

And doing any one of a thousand things that I’ve not mentioned. Virtually unstallable and with a very low approach speed it will be an ideal learner platform. Couldn’t afford to do a PPL. Q How do I get the relevant forms? The student must be at least 14 years of age on commencement nppl training.

Holders are entitled to fly UK registered single-engined aircraft or microlights and self-powered gliders within UK airspace. But your profile says that you are just learning to fly at present.
