Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (LAPL)

The EASA LAPL course is designed to keep the cost of learning to fly to a minimum.

This licence allows you to fly anywhere in Europe without need to change or upgrade your licence in any way. However you do need to maintain currency and to do this you simply need to retain 12 hours of flying time within the last 24 months. Furthermore, you will need to retain a GP certified medical, this provides evidence from your GP that you are fit to fly.

The course requires a minimum of 30 hours flying time, including six hours of supervised solo flying and concluding with a skills test. The test will examine your general handling, ability to fly and your navigation skills.

The course is structured to follow CAA requirements, but we tailor the course to your individual needs to make sure you understand the lessons and build on your experiences, giving you the confidence to perform to the best of your abilities. Our instructors have a wealth of experience, and will train you on a 'one to one' basis.

As a CAA Approved Training Organisation (ATO) we have a duty of care to make sure you progress and learn effectively throughout your course and we take this very seriously. We aim to keep you with your primary instructor whenever possible. All lessons are one to one so you can get quick answers to all your questions without feeling self conscious or worrying you are taking up other people's time!

The course is available 7 days a week in our school at Inverness Airport (EGPE). 

There are nine multi-choice exams to be completed including:

*Aviation Law
*Operational Procedures
