FLY365 UK offer flights and training in our Microlights or in your own aircraft. 

Our services include:

  • Trial Lessons
  • Introductory Flights 
  • Flight Training
  • Flight Gift Vouchers

Assuming you want to go ahead and learn to fly, you can do this at your own pace - from one hour per month to a full intensive course. Good accommodation is available locally if required. All training is completed on two-seat, dual-control aircraft, with an instructor, using radio intercom and training to the appropriate official syllabus. Training on your own aircraft, if suitable, is a possibility.

If you are thinking of becoming a pilot, don't be put off by the thought of winter. Although the British winter brings poor weather, some winter days can produce the best flying conditions. Flying on one of those crisp, clear, winter days over a snowscape, in itself, makes learning to fly worthwhile. 

 


What you will need to do to get your license

NPPL Microlight Fixed wing and Flex wing (National Issued PPL for a two seat single Piston Engine aircraft with an MTOW of 600Kg

To fly a microlight in the UK, you will need a National Private Pilot Licence, with a rating which covers microlight aircraft. This licence is issued by the Civil Aviation Authority, and is called an NPPL(M).

The NPPL (M) unrestricted licence

This consists of both flight and ground based activities. The minimum requirements before applying to the CAA for your NPPL (M) license are:

  • Flight time under instruction – 25 hours in total, which has to include the following:-
  • Flight time solo – 10 hours
  • Total navigation flight time – 5 hours
  • Solo navigation flight time – 3 hours

The solo navigation hours must include EITHER Two Qualifying Cross-Country Flights, each having a minimum total flight distance of 40nm, with a landing at another site which is at least 15nm measured in a straight line, from the take off site where the flight began. OR A single flight of at least 100nm, with 2 landings at other sites, each of which are more than 15nm, measured in a straight line, from the point of take-off and from the take-off site from which the flight began.

You will need to hold a valid medical declaration / certificate in order to fly solo. We recommend you obtain this as early into your training as possible.

There are 5 ground based written exams that you need to pass:

  • Air Law
  • Meteorology
  • Navigation
  • Aeroplane Technical
  • Human Performance & Limitations

Once you have completed the minimum requirements and you have met the required standards, you will be ready to take a General Skills Test (GST) and Ground Oral Exam with a CAA approved Examiner.

Subject to passing the tests, you will be ready to submit your application to the CAA for your unrestricted NPPL(M) license

The hours that are indicated here are the minimums that are set by the CAA, however, the actual time taken to obtain your license will depend entirely on your progression through the syllabus and your ability to complete flying exercises to the required standard. There is no proven way to gauge how long this might be exactly, though previous flying experience may be useful in speeding up this process; an approximation of around a year to complete the license requirements is a reasonable expectation.

 

The NPPL (M) restricted licence

This consists of both flight and ground based activities but has fewer requirements and therefore makes it a more affordable way to gain a license.

The minimum requirements before applying to the CAA for your NPPL (M) restricted license are:

  • 15 hours Flying time in total, which must include 7 hours solo
  • 5 Ground based examinations passed (as unrestricted licence)
  • Valid medical declaration/certificate
  • General Skills Test / Ground Oral Exam

Please Note: The restrictions on this licence are;

  • The pilot must not fly more than 8nm from the departure airfield.
  • The pilot must not fly when the cloud base is lower than 1000ft above ground level (AGL) and/or visibility is less than 10KM.
  • You may not carry a passenger

You can upgrade to the full, unrestricted licence, with additional training within 2 years.
