Until 2018 you do not need a licence to fly a glider. However, once you have reached the standard you can apply for a Light Aircraft Pilots Licence (Sailplanes) LAPL(S) this usually takes people at least two years. After 2018 you will need a LAPL(S) to do more than local flying.
- I have done powered flying/hang gliding/paragliding does that count towards Gliding?
- When do you fly?
