The National Pilot Licence is ideal for recreational pilots. While you are limited to flying aircraft in the Light Sport Aircraft (LSA), Conventionally Controlled Microlight (CCM) or Weight-shift Controlled Microlight (WCM) categories, it remains the most affordable way to get in the air!
The NPL does not allow you to fly for reward or remuneration, or outside the borders of South Africa.
Training in a less expensive aircraft, and with a slightly lower requirement for total flight time, makes this the most affordable way to realise your dream of flight. On completion of your NPL you can use this license as credits towards completing your PPL or CPL.
