Using UK National Permit to Fly aeroplanes and amateur-built microlights for initial pilot training

Earlier this year we opened two consultations on proposals to extend paid-for initial (Ab initio) pilot training to be conducted using certain aeroplanes which hold a UK national Permit to Fly (PtF) and amateur-built microlights, to trainees that are not owners of the aircraft.

Having completed a detailed analysis we have now published the results of these consultations and summarised our next steps.
