NPPL SLMG (Glider Pilot conversion)

npplAt MotorGlide, our instructors have taken many glider pilots through their training to issue them with a NPPL.

Motorgliding is a great addition to gliding. On those low inversion days when there are no thermals, or in winter when soaring is limited, a motorglider can keep you flying and practising those gliding skills.

Above all, most people find the cost savings are huge compared to other types of powered aircraft. Our self-hire prices are almost 50% cheaper than SEP aircraft.

We can teach club members for NPPL for as little as £99 per hour (or even less if you join our frequent flyer scheme), offering an online booking system and 7 days a week training.
