National Private Pilots Licence

National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL)

Essentially a cut-down version of the PPL, this restricted Licence is ideal for recreational flight within the UK. The medical requirements are less stringent than those of the PPL but the Licence does have operational limits:
 
1. Only VFR (Visual Flight Rules) flight is permitted. It does not grant you permission to fly using your instruments alone, for example in cloud, or when visibility is low.
2. You may fly only UK-registered aircraft, and solely within UK airspace.
3. You may carry a maximum of three passengers.

You cannot add a Night Qualification or IMC.
PRE-COURSE REQUIREMENTS
You must sign a declaration of fitness to fly. This must be supported by a declaration from you doctor, confirming that you reach the DVLA 2* standard of fitness. Applicants who meet only the DVLA 1 standard of fitness can fly solo if accompanied by another qualified pilot.

*The Driver and Vehicle Licencing Agency (DVLA) require road users to satisfy certian medical standards. DVLA 1 (private driver) and DVLA 2 (professional driver) standards are used within the NPPL to ascertain fitness to fly. For more information visti the DVLA website.

Before you can gain your lincence, you are required to spend a minimum of 32 hours in the air. Pilots of different categories of aircraft will recieve credit for their existing experience, thus reducing the number of hours required to complete the course.
