Main Issues
IAOPA Regional Meeting
Zürich

Foreign Licenses
 Proposed regulation is a severe attack on third
country licenses
 It will stop many GA operations that today are
carried out with a perfect safety record
 Instead of fixing deficiencies on our own
licencing system we ban out the competition
 Let us create an environment where European
licenses are attractive and our FTOs are
competitive
Management systems
 The extensive requirement for management
systems and quality control systems will for small
training organisations be completely overwhelming.
 Specially for the current ”registered facilities”
 It contradicts the concept of a simple LPL licence if
the organisational requirements put unrealistic
burdens on the flying schools
Leisure Pilot License
 Can we agree on a common approach
for the LPL and basic LPL?
 Is it safe?
 Do we support the principles?
LPL concept in brief
 Leisure Pilot License for non-commercial
operations with single engine piston
engine aircraft up to 2000 kg (glider,
ballon, helicopter, aircraft)
 Ratings:

Mountain, aerobatic, night etc.

NO INSTRUMENT RATING
Two variants of the LPL
 Basic LPL

Valid for local flights (50km) and carrying
max. one passenger. Requires 20 hours
flight time (10 hours dual)
 Full LPL

Valid for up to three passengers and with no
local flight restriction
LPL – pros and cons
 PROS:




Lighter requirements
Lower costs
It might get more
people into GA
It is what a number
of pilots wants (EAS)
 CONS:
 Is it safe?
 Will we see an increase in
accident rates?
 Will a bad safety record for
the LPL give GA in general
a negative reputation?
 Will it cannibalise the PPL
and increase costs for
existing PPL holders?
Possible compromise
 Support the LPL in general and the full
LPL in particular
 Express our reservations with respect to
the basic LPL
 Propose a 1000 kg limit for the basic LPL
Recurring checkride with
examiner
 The existing ”flight with an instructor” is
replaced with a checkride with an
examiner.
 Does turning training into a test improve
the pilots skills?
 This may scare off people to not renew
their license
No solution for IMC Rating/PPL IR
 A solution must be found for the existing
holders of a UK instrument rating
 A realistic solution must be found for the
private pilot to achieve an IFR rating

This would also take away the number one
reason for people basing foreign registered
aircraft in Europe
LAPL instead of LPL
 The whole industry supports the name
Light Aircraft Pilot License (LAPL)
instead of Leisure Pilot License (LPL).
 The name should be changed even if it
comes from the Basic Regulation
