The transition from an EASA LAPL(A) (Light Aircraft Pilot License) to a PPL(A) (Private Pilot License) involves an upgrade process that allows LAPL holders to expand their privileges and capabilities as pilots.
Typically, pilots wishing to persue additional ratings such as Multi-Engine, Instrument or upgrading to the Commercial Pilot License will undergo this training.
Why upgrade to a PPL?
Upgrading to a PPL(A) grants you expanded privileges recognised worldwide, allowing you to fly larger or more complex aircraft and to operate in a broader range of airspace expanding beyond the boundaries of European airspace.
The upgrade process from a LAPL(A) to a PPL(A) involves fulfilling the additional requirements mandated for the PPL(A), including additional flight hours, training and passing the necessary skill test.
