Getting a LAPL(A) Licence to Fly TMG or SEP Airplanes

So you’re looking to learn to fly but just for fun as a recreational pilot with upto 3 friends or on your own?

Then you may find training and taking your test for the European Aviation Safety Agency Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence (EASA LAPL) is your best option.

Instead of a minimum of 45 hours training for the full PPL(A) you only need do a minimum of 30 hours flight training. Do note this figure is a minimum and everyone learns at a different rate.

Save on the cost with LAPL(A) Training

With the training entailing less hours in comparison to Full PPL(A), it’s potentially two thirds cheaper offering a substantial saving.

To get your LAPL will entail you undergo the following:

  • 6 hours of solo time

  • 24 hours of dual flying instruction

  • Solo cross country navigation

  • Skills Test

Ground Exams

The Ground Exam subjects you will need to study and pass are as follows:

Minimum Age Limit

14 years of age to start your flight training
16 years of age to go solo
