Revalidating lapsed ppl
This allows you to fly an aircraft with one piston engine, weighing up to 2000kg, in reasonable weather, in daytime and to use the aircraft radio to communicate with ATC.To obtain this licence you must complete a minimum of 32 hours flying training – plus 2 skill tests, 10 hours of this must be solo and of that, 5 hours must be navigation.If you have an NPPL and wish to fly EASA aircraft after that date, you will need to apply for an EASA LAPL.The EASA LAPL is a European licence which is recognised by all EASA countries.
This allows you to fly an aircraft with one piston engine, maximum weight 2000 kg, carrying up to 3 passengers, in reasonable weather, in daytime and to use the aircraft radio to communicate with ATC.You will need at least an NPPL medical declaration, available to download from the CAA website (which requires that you meet the DVLA driving standards), EASA class 2 and LAPL medical certificates are also acceptable.From April 2018 the NPPL will not be acceptable to fly an “EASA aircraft”, such as those at most flying schools, it will still be able to be used for those aircraft with a CAA or LAA “permit to fly”.To obtain this licence you must complete a minimum of 30 hours flying, 6 hours of this must be supervised solo and of that, 3 hours must be navigation.
Then it’s on to cross-country navigation, where we go and visit another airfield (we normally use Newcastle, Durham Tees-Valley or Blackpool), eventually you then just have some pre-test revision and the skills test to do.
Once you have passed all the exams within the 18 month/6 sitting window, they are valid for licence issue for 24 months from the final exam pass.
