LAC Flying School - The National Private Pilot Licence Course
The National Private Pilot Licence
The NPPL is a more restrictive licence than the JAR licence. It can only be used in UK and French airspace, during hours of daylight and in reasonable weather conditions. These restrictions cannot be removed, unless the licence is upgraded to a JAA one.
The course consists of a minimum of 32 hours flying training consisting of 22 hours dual and 10 hours solo, followed by a flight test. There are 7 written examinations to be completed, as well as a short radiotelephony course. Unlike the JAR PPL, at the moment the medical examination can be completed by your GP which is a similar standard to that required of a HGV driver.
The 7 written exams are exactly the same as those required for the JAR Licence:
- Aviation Law & Procedures
- Aircraft Technical
- Flight Planning & Performance
- Human Performance
Study material is available to purchase at the flying school. One to one tuition on the theoretical knowledge is available if the student feels it is necessary. As well as one to one ground school we also run theoretical courses throughout the winter months, please contact the office for dates and prices.
