In the UK there are many different types of recreational flying available. Whether it is in traditional light
aircraft, microlights, gliders, helicopters, balloons or even gyrocopters, there are many options to choose from to
suit a range of interests and budgets.
This section is about how you can take your first steps towards acquiring a pilot licence, which you will need in
order to participate in almost all types of flying.
Learning to fly is often one of the most rewarding things you will ever undertake. It is also a serious commitment
of both your time and money so it’s important to do your research and make informed decisions about your training.
Prior to starting training for any pilot licence it is worth considering the medical standards required. You will
need to have a medical examination and be given a medical certificate in order for your licence to be valid. A good
place to start is our quick guide to LAPL medical
requirements, which are the least demanding.
