Title:The PPL Review
Description:As part of the General Aviation Red Tape Challenge, the CAA employed Edward Bellamy, the author of this report, to conduct some research into the process an individual is required to undertake to obtain a Private Pilot’s Licence (PPL) or other similar qualification for recreational or private flying in the UK.
Particular focus was given to the availability of information, including the ease of understanding, costs of training, both within training schools and those imposed by the regulator, regulatory requirements and any other associated hurdles.
The work commenced in May 2014 and these findings are based on engaging with a variety of areas of the CAA, various instructors and, through email and the Flyer forum, the views of qualified and student pilots.
