Light Aeroplane Pilot Licence
The Light Aeroplane Pilots Licence (LAPL) is a UK based licence which allows you to act as pilot in command (PIC) on two classes of aircraft — a single-engine piston aeroplane (on land), or touring motor glider (TMG).
The LAPL requires a medical validation from a GP rather than a full CAA class 2 medical, this is for those who may not want to take their flying further and instead just wish to enjoy the thrill of flying around their local area. It also enables you to take your friends and family as passengers.
