NPPL(M) - Powered Parachutes (without Operational Limitations):
A new pilot needs a minimum of 15 hours flight training plus 4 hours solo flight time under the supervision of a licensed instructor. During this training time you will complete 25 take offs and landings and pass a General Skills test and complete navigation training. We recommend getting a licence with operational limitations and removing the restrictions as a later step. This will save you money.
