UK Part-FCL LAPL(A) - Light Aircraft Pilot's Licence Aeroplanes
The Light Aircraft Pilot Licence is ideal for those wanting to fly recreationally around the UK. The minimum flight time required in order to gain your licence is 30 hours and, once issued, you will be qualified to fly single engine aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 2 tonnes and with a maximum of three passengers.
Further training can be undertaken to add the Aerobatic or Night Rating to your licence.
The licence is valid for life but you have to maintain currency by flying a minimum of 12 hours in the last 24 months. You will also need to hold a LAPL Medical Certificate.
The LAPL course consists of three phases: Basic Flight Training, Circuit Training and Advanced Flight Training. Within each phase you will be expected to self-study towards or attend Ground School for the nine theoretical knowledge examinations that will be staggered throughout your course. Additionally, you will have to pass a practical radio exam towards the end of your training.
Our aim is always to be transparent about the cost of pilot training, and we endeavour to explain the full cost upfront. Our training packages include bulk discounts and are designed to free the buyer from the financial burden of hidden costs.
Each package includes full flying lessons with the minimum number of flight hours required for the qualification, but please note that student pilots may need additional practice or training to reach the required standard of the flight test.
For customers that would rather spread the cost of training, we also offer a pay-as-you-go scheme. Please contact our team for more information and rates.
