Project Description

Distance Learning Course LAPL/PPL(A)

Private Pilot License Aeroplanes
Light Airplane Pilot License

Our Distance Learning Course LAPL(A)/PPL(A) encompasses the topics below. It is available in paper (high quality color print in binders) and/or as an electronic license via our CAT eBook Viewer (1) .

Note: The theoretical syllabuses for LAPL(A) and PPL(A) are the same. That’s why there is only one course.

• Principles of Flight
• General Navigation
• Mass & Balance
• Electrics
• Operational Procedures
• Flightplanning and -monitoring
• Aircraft General Knowledge
• Radio Navigation
• Instrumentation
• Air-Law
• Human Performance and Limitations
• Meteorology
• Powerplant

This course reduces the required theory time from 100 hours in a classroom to a 10-hours presence seminar in an ATO (Approved Training Organization = flight school) of your choice. The price for this seminar depends on the chosen ATO and is not included in the CAT course.
