What skills are trained as part of an LAPL?
In case of an LAPL training (Light Aircraft Pilot Licence) you will be trained to become a pilot who is allowed to only execute private flights on single engine airplanes in Europe, as a commander in accordance with VFR (Visual Flight Rules). Outside of Europe an LAPL does not allow a pilot to fly and it is not possible to obtain an equivalent license.

As a commander you are licensed to fly private single engine airplanes and their passengers. Commercial flights (against payment) are not allowed.
