WSM: Practical Training Phase 6

PRACTICAL FLIGHT TRAINING FOR NPL
WEIGHT SHIFT CONTROLLED MICROLIGHTS  
 
You can expect the syllabus set by flight schools to differ in respect of the implementation of the requirements.
 
However, the following is offered as a guide to prospective student pilots on what they will cover in their training.
 
The practical flight training syllabus set out below is broken up into 5 phases. The is to train a student pilot  to the level of proficiency required for the issue of a type rating for light sport weight shift controlled microlights, and to provide the training necessary to act as pilot-in-command of any light sport weight shift controlled microlight for which he or she holds a valid class or type rating, engaged in non-revenue flights under visual flight rules.
 
Each lesson will be repeated until a satisfactory level is obtained.  These lessons are set out as follows:
