Private Pilot Licence (PPL) and Light Aircraft Pilot Licence (LAPL)
Choosing between the different types of licence might seem daunting at first, but with the right advice it is fairly straightforward. We offer the two main licences available in the UK, the Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (LAPL) and the Private Pilots Licence (PPL).
Both licences have various minimum requirements. Unlike learning to drive, you will fly the aircraft on your own (solo) in various different scenarios, one being a qualifying cross country flight during which you will land at at least one other airfield. They also require the same theoretical knowledge and so the ground exams are the same.
