Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence
The Light Aircraft Pilot’s Licence (LAPL) is a relatively new option for recreational pilots and it’s slightly more restrictive than the Private Pilots Licence. For example, you are limited to carrying no more than three passengers (plus yourself as the pilot), and to flying aeroplanes below 2,000 kg and can only be used in Europe. The training requirements are a little less than for the PPL, with a minimum of 30 hours flight training and 100 hours of theoretical training.
As with the PPL, on completion of the course you will complete a Skills Test with an Irish Aviation Authority Examiner.
