LAPL(A) stands for Light Aircraft Pilot License (Airplane), and it's a type of pilot license regulated by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The LAPL(A) is designed for individuals who wish to fly light aircraft for non-commercial purposes within Europe. It's considered a more accessible and cost-effective option compared to other licenses like the Private Pilot License (PPL).
With a LAPL(A), you'll have certain privileges as a pilot. You'll be permitted to fly single-engine piston aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of up to 2,000 kg carrying a maximum of three passengers, excluding the pilot.
