Once you've completed your trial flight, you'll either have enjoyed the experience and decided to leave it there, or like most people you'll want to learn to fly. Just imagine, once you have your pilot's license you can share the wonderful experience of flight with your friends and relatives. Or simply enjoy the majesty of flying over hill and dale in uncongested skies.
To qualify for a National Private Pilots License (Microlights) you'll need to fly for a minimum of 25 hours in total, and sometimes more depending upon your ability. On average, you should plan for 30-40 hours to complete your training.
The flying course consists of some 22 exercises that you must complete to the satisfaction of your instructor. Often, one of more exercises are combined into a single lesson. Most students book one or two lessons per week, and depending on the weather can expect to complete the course in about 6 months.
In addition to the flying course you'll also have to learn some theory. With the responsibility of flying an aircraft comes the need to learn a whole new set of topics. These include:
- Human Performance and Limitations
- Air Law
- Aircraft Technical
You'll need to successfully pass a multiple choice test in each of these topics. But do not fear, we're to help you and can provide ground school instruction or loan you various training aids to assist with your studies.

The cost of achieving an NPPL(M) license isn't as expensive as you might think. In fact, it works out at roughly half of what it would cost you to earn a full GA PPL and it's at least twice as much fun!
