Getting your NPPL Licence to Fly TMG or SEP Airplanes
Long before the EASA LAPL licence came on the scene, it was common for those wanting to be a recreational, hobby pilot to get their NPPL licence. It enabled those who wanted to fly within the confines of the UK but without the added expense of obtaining a full PPL (due to less hours needed).
The NPPL licence is still in some demand by potential pilots and the following training would be required to be obtain it:
Minimum of 32 hours flight training comprising of 22 hours dual and 10 hours solo
One cross country flight of at least 100nm during which a full stop landing at two different airfields is required
Passing all PPL multiple choice exams
Having an NPPL entitles you fly on your own or with passengers and being able to self declare your fitness to fly instead of having to have an aviation medical.
The Ground Exam subjects you will need to study and pass are as follows:
Aircraft General Knowledge
Principles of Flight
Flight Performance and Planning
NPPLs require you only to self certify your fitness to fly.
Minimum Age Limit
14 years of age to start your flight training
16 years of age to go solo
17 years of age to be issued with a LAPL(A) licence
