Holders of an LAPL (A) can carry passengers once they have completed 10 hours of flight time as PIC on aeroplanes.

With LAPL you can expand your flying experience with:

  • Night flying,  permitting Night VFR.
  • Aerobatic rating
  • Sailplane (i.e. glider) towing
  • Banner towing
  • Mountain flying
  • Differences training for tailwheel, floats, skis, variable pitch propeller, retractable undercarriage
  • Fly a non-EASA aircraft (e.g. Annex I) . This includes many lower cost and home-built aircrafts.


Hours flown with LAPL are fully credited towards PPL and "higher" licences (like CPL) 

After completion of LAPL, should you want to upgrade to PPL, your theories are fully credited. In pratice you could have PPL as little as flying 10 hours in ATO or in DTO (+Skill test)
