LAPL — Privileges and conditions

The privileges of the holder of an LAPL(A) are to act without remuneration as PIC in non-commercial operations on aeroplanes.

Privileges and conditions

The privileges of the holder of an LAPL for aeroplanes are to act as PIC on singleengine piston aeroplanes-land or TMG with a maximum certificated take-off mass of 2000 kg or less, carrying a maximum of 3 passengers, such that there are never more than 4 persons on board of the aircraft.

Holders of an LAPL(A) shall only carry passengers once they have completed 10 hours of flight time as PIC on aeroplanes or TMG after the issuance of the licence.

Difference form PPL to LAPL

the major difference for Pilots, will be the reduced training for the license. Instead of 45 hours required training you need as a minimum only 30 hours of training.

There are several parts of the PPL training, like Radio Navigation is not included in the LAPL training. We consider this training as a very minimal training to fly aircraft up to 2000kg.

From more than 15 years of experience of PPL training we suggest future Pilots to train for the PPL, to get popper skills, because -Flying is Experience!! and 30 hours is in our consideration the very low limit!


Our highly qualified instructors will guide you through the entire training. The flight training will be done in the in southern Spain, Andalusia, Jerez – the place in Europe with the best weather all over the year. 1‐to‐1 flight training, and theory in small groups (limited to a maximum of 5 students).

We provide high‐quality flight training To the latest EASA standards Professional, approachable, forward‐thinking staff International, multi‐cultural atmosphere ‐ our students come from all over the world.

The LAPL theory course is designed to be mostly self study. You can study up to 90% of the theory before you leave home, using our Web‐Based Training Program Portal (WBT). If you prefer to learn from books, you can order a Training Kit from us.

Arriving in Jerez fully prepared for the written exams will put you at a huge advantage and allow you to make the most of your fast and intensive flight training!

According to EASA & UK CAA regulations, we must ensure that you do 100 hours of theoretical study in total ‐ we recommend that you use our WBT (Web-Based-Training), but using books is also fine. You will then do at least 10 hours of ground school with us in Jerez during your flight training with our qualified and experienced Ground Instructors.

If you like we will help you to prepare yourself for the written exams!

If you like you also can do the theory training (or a part of it) with us in Jerez. Our instructors will help and teach you if you like in 1:1 lessons.

We have the Ground Examiner on our staff in Jerez.

Most people find the exams straightforward, but you have up to 3 attempts to pass each one, and you can repeat them whenever you like during your training. However, we recommend that you finish all the written exams early.

All the written theory exams (9 in total) are taken in our Flight School in Jerez.
