National Pilot License (NPL)
Obtaining a National Pilot License (NPL) means that you are trained to operate a Microlight or Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) under Part 62 of the Civil Aviation Regulations. The National Pilot License is used mainly for recreational flying and the license can range from Microlights to Light Sport Aircraft
Private Pilot License (PPL)
A Private Pilot License (PPL) is the most popular license for the pilot that operates a wide range of light aircraft. The PPL license is used for recreational purposes but it is also the starting point for the aspiring Commercial pilot
Commercial Pilot License (CPL)
The Commercial Pilot License (CPL) is for the professional pilot that wants to earn a living from flying. A CPL is much more advanced than the PPL in the sense that Instrument Flying forms a big part of the training. This allows the Pilot with a CPL to operate an aircraft in certain weather conditions that a PPL pilot cannot fly in. You are also allowed to be reimbursed for operating an aircraft as a Commercial Pilot.
Instrument Rating for the aspiring professional pilot, the instrument rating takes you into the world of advanced flight, giving you the capability of flying, navigating and landing in instrument weather conditions. You will have encountered the basics of instrument flight during your night rating training.
A Night Rating affords the competent Private Pilot the chance to conduct operations at night. It increases the versatility and skill of the pilot as flying at night requires comprehensive judgment to conduct a flight safely and effectively. It is a requirement for the Commercial Pilot to have a Night Rating and it’s also the practical second step to take towards the Commercial License.
A Grade 3 Flight Instructor Rating allows you to give flying training in all sequences for a Private Pilot License and a Commercial Pilot License.
