CAA NPPL- National Private Pilots Licence

This licence is for use only in the UK and is aimed at people who wish to just fly for enjoyment rather than as a stepping stone to a career in aviation. The NPPL was a created as an alternative to the stricter JAR-regulated PPL and its associated medical requirements. Whilst such regulations may be appropriate for commercial aviation, it was suggested that they can impose an excessive burden on recreational pilots. Award of an NPPL still requires that students train to a comprehensive skill level, it allows the holder to fly either solo or with up to three passengers, in a single engine light aircraft with Maximum Take off weight of 2000 kg (4408 lb) using Visual Flight Rules only between the hours of daylight.  

Minimum 32 Hours Flight Training, Navigation Skill test before solo navigation and final General Flight Test plus theory examination subjects.
