NPL Pilot & conversion requirements

Unread post by Steve » Thu Jun 18, 2009 10:58 am

I notice on the RAASA web site, there are three very nicely produced diagrams they illustrate the requirements for the NPL license, as well as conversions between the categories and the Instructor's rating process:

It's well worth downloading them and printing them out.... Thanks RAASA :)

Hi Steve

What are the requirement for a PPL pilot flying both ZU and ZS (zu like a savannah).

1.Do I have to apply for a new licence to fly Savannah and or RV ?
2.Do I have to keep log of the hours now in a seperate log book ?
3.What is the biggest aircraft that you are allowed to fly with a NPL licence ?
4.Does CAA still handle PPL renewals ?

Cheers

Hi iceman

For three axis aircraft you need only do a type conversion to fly on your PPL.

1. No, you can fly those types on your PPL.
2. No, if you fly a different category like Gyr or WCM it might make it easier to tally your flying totals.
3. An aircraft that falls within the LSA category (600kg MTOW) - see other thread in this section on specification.
4. Yes.

Hope this helps.
