One may as well go for the PPL. Not so much as the saying goes using their license to learn to fly, but learning how to get their hands on a plane which isn’t falling to bits, etc. Only 5 hrs more for JAR – and that’s only if you qualify in the minimum time – so, no real difference. Each Class has its own training syllabus. Consequently I am of the opinion that the NPPL is an excellent innovation and far from a waste of time. A You should sign the applicant’s Certificate of Revalidation in the normal way, but do not need to submit any paperwork to the LAA.

But how on earth can you argue about this, when it’s npp to personal preferences? Perhaps it doesn’t seem like much but it could tip the balance.
So there is really no saving if you are only going to fly the absolute minimum hours, and let’s face it, if you are only flying the bare minimum, you are hardly going to be a complete genius in the air anyway! This article needs to be updated.
UK CAA Nation Private Pilot’s Licence (NPPL)
It was perfect for what I required. Having my priviledges curtailed due to blood pressure, I have to say that an NPPL looks very attractive. NPPL medical self-declarations signed by your GP issued before 25th of August continue to be valid until their expiry date.
I cannot take advantage yet but if I get fitter I’ll certainly give it a go. IO Never have I heard such nonsense and to offer such as advice to an aspiring pilot is idiotic. A The course consists of a minimum of 32 hours plus tests. I started looking for a share to buy very early after starting flight training, because it was really really obvious that would be the only way to continue flying at that particular airport.
Financially, not much difference to mppl. A See cross crediting document. It has more restrictions than a full Private Pilot Licence PPLbut requires fewer hours of practical training and hppl stringent medical checks. We are working on out ATO approval, which will be extended to cover new capabilities. In this period, a total of at least 12 hours flight time, including 8 hours as PIC must be completed in order to revalidate by experience.
To stay current they also need to fly an hour with an instructor, if that’s paid for because you’re not having to pay for the medical then that’s one less thing to worry about when the family are complaining that they need luxuries like food and shoes. A For life, subject to the revalidation requirements of the class rating entered in the licence. I’m sure there is probably some training req. A Yes, but good practice suggests that Skills Tests should be examined whenever possible by someone other than the instructor who has conducted the bulk of your training.
IO npppl quite right when he says things take years. I had to fly ten hours to do it! I am well aware that I am outspoken on occassions: Note that the SSEA ‘Single seat only’ endorsement nppll provides privileges in single seat aircraft npol such as a Jodel D9 or Taylor Monoplane and not solo flight in aircraft with more than one seat.

Q If I apply npp more than one rating on the one application, do I npp to pay more? A Download from this website, or from the BGA office I’m learning to fly at the moment, and I’ve elected for the JAR course. You can fly anywhere in the UK in VFR good visibilty conditions with planes that fly up to knots and carry max 4 passengers.
You don’t have to just bimble around the local area on an NPPL, nothing to stop you flying a thousand types of aircraft, learning aerobatics, touring the islands and highlands, landing on the beach at Barra, popping down to Bodmin, taking the family to Blackpool then down to Bexhill – and that’s just the Bs.
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. Each Class has its own training syllabus.
