However, you should keep a record of the applicant’s name, licence number, and date, for those licences you have signed. Doesn’t actually sound like a dead end to me. Because the licence does not meet the required minimum standards 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. A Yes, this will have been recorded in your personal flying logbook, and counts regardless. I plan to hit the within 24 months if this infernal weather will let me!!!

Given that most students will accrue at least as many hours as npppl by the JAR-FCL course, it is recommended that unless medical circumstances dictate otherwise the JAR course is followed.

IO Never have I heard such nonsense and to offer such as advice to an aspiring pilot is idiotic.

NPPL: national private pilot licence | UK Civil Aviation Authority

Npppl pilot’s General Practitionerwho has access to the medical records of the applicant, can sign the medical declaration. But apart from someone who’s passion is pnpl which one can do quite happily forever in the UK everyone else will increase their enjoyment of flying greatly if they can leave the country.

Membership of FAC is additiional. In reality, all the people I know who have gone for the NPPL, once they have realised that the medical isn’t such a problem, they’ve gone straight over to the ‘standard’ PPL. Why can’t people see that it’s just horses for courses.


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. Would love eg, to be able to hire, say, in Mallorca, nppl do a return trip down the Spanish coast as far as Gibraltar refuelling stops appreciated!

IOS54,what a load of rubbish. This requires 2 additional requirements: If a radio telephony licence is required, and it usualyy is, then a radio telephony oral exam must also be taken. Holders are entitled to fly UK registered single-engined aircraft or microlights and self-powered gliders within UK airspace. I’m an experienced glider pilot and instructor and my qualifications and hours counted towards reducing the number of hours required to obtaining the NPPL. Archived copy as title Use dmy dates from August Use British English from August Wikipedia articles in need of updating from September All Wikipedia articles in need of updating.

They don’t necessarily tell their customers that though, because a NPPL looks cheaper on their school price list, which is why the flight training industry lobbied for it. The more you fly, generally the better and safer you become. NPPL holders can be licensed to fly different types of aircraft.

Whereas any such training in Europe esp. This article needs to be updated. There are separate syllabuses for aeroplanes and self-launching motor gliders. I got an NPPL a couple of years ago. Obviously there are exceptions, but I think most people who start flying for fun, stay flying for fun.

National Private Pilot Licence

The final stage to the course is a general skills test covering the general handling exercises. Doesn’t actually sound like a dead end to me. Of course European and US flying prices remained the same post JAR and the UK nplp needed a way of backtracking on price while at the same time saving face.


Virtually unstallable and with a very low approach speed it will be an ideal learner npp. I am well aware that I am outspoken on occassions: But will it allow addition of IMC and night ratings? They will require a few hours of additional differences training on each new type of aircraft and an additional type rating licence to be issued.

Npol As long as the aircraft weight does not exceed kg, you can undertake differences training which qualifies you to fly more complex single engine types. You might form a different opinion then.

UK CAA Nation Private Pilot’s Licence (NPPL) – Ravenair

You may also now fly to the Isle of Man with prior clearance from their Nppp Authority. It is strongly recommended that the general declaration is sought before commencing training, since failing to meet the medical requirements will result in a cessation of training.

I have to disagree as to the type and cost of training! The European flight crew regulations are expected to change in and be centrally administered by the European Aviation Safety Authority.

It’ll save me a fortune on medicals, since I’d need a Class 2 every year.
