Causal factor analysis of airspace infringements published 31 January, You can fly anywhere in the UK in VFR good visibilty conditions with planes that fly up to knots and carry max 4 passengers. I can also appreciate the medical aspect. Perhaps it doesn’t seem like much but it could tip the balance. The NPPL takeup is a witness to this. Retrieved 12 June The more you fly, generally the better and safer you become.

But surely there are other differences. I have no intention of flying in cloud probably wont go to Europe although I am under the impression that a recreational license similar to ours is in the pipeline and hopefully be reciprical.

For some it will be aeros, some touring, some grass strip flying etc. 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. Oh yes and one can be a Pilot Examiner too with a Class 3.

You might form a different opinion then. And unfortunately, it is not possible to add ratings which remove these restrictions.

I had to fly ten hours to do it! There are two levels which match those required for professional drivers — DVLA Class 1 permits solo flight and flight with another pilot,while DVLA Class 2 permits flights with up to three passengers. I am well aware that I am outspoken on occassions: It isn’t a waste of time, but it is far from being the panacea that many seemed to expect.


Perhaps someone could give a rational explanation for this, apart from the blanket statement ‘That’s what the CAA say’ This may be ok for the C types, but a lot of nplp built machines are faster than this. That’s nlpl you want to do – what’s the problem? Aviation licenses and certifications Aviation in the United Kingdom.

I’ve not changed my mind, yet.


I think, as somebody posted, it is a ‘horses for courses’ thing. When this happens, there will not be the automatic transfer of hours unless the npl used was a JAA qualified instructor and the JAA sylabus was followed and the training establishment was registered for JAA trainig.

Before I move this from Wannabes, I should correct Broomstick on one error he has made. The NPPL takeup is a witness to this. Complete on the class of aeroplanes held: Thirty hours of practical flying instruction counts towards the 45 hours minimum requirements of the PPL.

I’d say that the difference between an IAS not Bppl, I believe of kt, and the speed of just about anything with pistons in it as seen by ATC radar and allowing for less than well known winds aloft, is not a problem: Financially, not much difference to me. Most of the people who stick to flying locally pack it up for good, very fast. Whereas any such training in Europe esp. The difference in the cost of the two medicals, spread over two years’ flying.

The NPPL can only be used on UK-registered aircraft inside UK airspace, unless you have an agreement with the aviation authorities in another country which will allow you to fly in that country’s airspace. The final stage to the course is a general skills test covering the general handling exercises.

A further 2 to 3 hours flying time should be allowed for the two practical tests that follow. No need to duck, IO; we just have differing views on a couple of things. For the people who just want to fly in UK – good luck to you. If you nppl on the west coast, you may very well want to be able to take a trip over to Ireland. However, you should keep a record of the applicant’s name, licence number, and date, for those licences you have signed. Of course European and US flying prices remained npol same post JAR and the UK schools needed a way of backtracking on price while at the same time saving face.

NPPL holders can be licensed to fly different types of aircraft. This article needs to be updated.
