LAPL(A) - Recreational Private Pilot Licence

General information

LAPL(A) – Recreational Private Pilot License is a new type of license that allows you to pilot single-engine aircrafts or motogliders with MTOW 2000 kg or less, carrying a maximum of 3 passengers to never exceed 4 people on board in total. It’s for those who want to fly something more than ultralight but don’t plan for a career in aviation.

You will start the training by learning the very basics of piloting an airplane and end up mastering independent flights.


LAPL(A) Theory

We use our e-learning platform, additionally, we meet during lectures and consultations with our instructors.

After the theoretical training, you will have a state exam at the Aviation Examination Board. And do not worry – we will certainly prepare you perfectly for this.

During the LAPL(A) license course we will cover topics related to the following subjects:

– Aviation law and flights planning procedures

– Man – abilities and limitations

– Meteorology

– Connectivity for flight operations

– Flight rules

– Operational procedures

– Flight execution and planning

– Aircraft general knowledge

– Navigation


LAPL(A) Practice

The training is carried out on Cessna 150/152, Cessna 172, Tecnam p2008 JCZL 150 Koliber airplanes.

The training ends with a state examination conducted by the Examiner of the Aviation Examination Board
