Gaining a licence.

The National Private Pilots Licence can be issued with two different class ratings, with operational limitations or without operational limitations.

To gain the NPPL without operational limitations you are required to complete a minimum of 25 hours flight training of which 10 hours must be solo, including two solo naviagtion cross country flights followed by a General Skills Test (GST). However, it may take longer, depending on how quickly you learn.

To gain the NPPL with operational limitations you are required to complete a minimum of 15 hours flight training of which 7 must be solo. Pilots are however restricted to:

1. No passengers until a minimum of 25 hours flying has been completed.
2. The pilot may not fly with a cloudbase of less than 1000ft above the ground and less than 10km visibility.
3. The pilot may not fly more than 8 nautical miles from the point of departure.


There are also 5 multiple choice theory exams that you are required to take. You can home study, have one to one tuition or make use of our groundschool classes.

The minimum age to start lessons is 14 and from there a student can go solo at 16 and then apply for a pilots licence at 17 years old.
