Re: Flying UK LAA Aircraft on Australian (CASA) PPL

Hi Gerry, If your friend is flying a non-EASA aeroplane registered in the UK such as those with a LAA Permit to Fly, then his ICAO licence is rendered valid under the UK Air Navigation Order, Article 150 . A declaration and/or validation are only required where the holder of an ICAO licence wishes t...

Re: Documentation

Non-EASA aeroplanes operate under national regulations. Therefore, your source document is the UK Air Navigation Order ( CAP 393 ). ANO Article 229 leads you to Schedule 10 and a list of required documents. An easier read is the Skyway Code produced by the UK CAA which is generally applicable to VFR...

Re: Licensing. Some Good News from the CAA.

This applies to NPPL holders whose licence and/or ratings were issued by the CAA before the 8th April 2018.
The latest exemption does not appear to have this restriction; in paragraph 3 of the document it states that the exemption applies to any person holding an appropriate licence.

Re: CAA to EASA licence conversion

Hi Duncan, In answer to your questions: Next question is how long have we now got? June 8th of April 2019? Assuming you gained your NPPL with SSEA rating or UK national PPL prior to 08th April 2018, you can apply under the conversion agreement in CAP 804 Section 4 Part P for an EASA licence AT ANY T...

Re: LAPL / NPPL(A) revalidation question

Hi Steve, You will find the answer in LAA Technical Leaflet 2.09 which confirms the current CAA policy allowing flight time gained in non-EASA aircraft to be credited towards issue, renewal, and revalidation of EASA licences, ratings, and certificates. Therefore, flight time gained in a Jodel would ...

Re: Rationalising PPL (D) microlight and NPPL (SSEA)

Hi Oliver,

Please ask the pilot to get in contact directly. My details on the LAA website under Pilot Coaching.

I would be happy to review his existing licences and ratings, and offer advice on the best route forwards.

Kind regards,

Re: Logging Microlight hours on EASA PPL

Opinion 05-2017 was released on 29th June 2017. Rather unexpectedly, EASA did not accept the proposal contained within NPA 2014-29(A) which would have allowed 3-axis microlight experience to be credited towards SEP Class Rating revalidation within Part-FCL licences. Within Comment Response Document...

Re: Pilot Coaching Scheme.

Thank you for your interest in the Pilot Coaching Scheme. Statistics such as those presented at the AGM do not necessarily represent an accurate picture of utilisation, since not all of the LAA membership who responded fly, and some those who do may not need the services of the PCS. Maybe it is beca...

Re: Logging Microlight hours on EASA PPL

Hi David, There are currently significant differences in how this is handled depending on which combination of licence and/or class ratings you hold. Note that for the NPPL, the class ratings such as the SSEA, SLMG, or microlight ratings are mutually exclusive. Therefore to fly microlights using a N...

Re: Night rating for NPPL

Is it sent to the LAA? I am at LAA HQ on Monday, so hoping to finalise the application forms then add them to the NPPL website after CAA agreement. The applicant will send the form to the LAA for us to recommend addition of the rating to your NPPL. Will there be an equivalent Temporary Licence Cert...

Re: Medical self-declaration

Can I legally fly myself and a passenger to and in France and onward? And as my medical is current will this change to self declare next year? And will that allow legal foreign flight? The new CAA self-declaration will only allow you to exercise the privilege of an EASA or national licence in the U...
