I always thought the most basic pilot license was PPL.
While reading up on what the easiest ( and cheapest) way would be to learn to fly, I came across something called 'Sport Pilot License' , which was new to me.
For one to get a sport pilot license, you only need 20 hrs of flying, no medical and some instructions. I looks like it also costs a lot less.
Although it comes with a lot of limitations ( no flying above 10000 ft or at night and can only fly light sport aircraft) I don't think it stops me from doing anything that I may be doing as a occasional hobby pilot.

As someone with no chance of ever doing flying for living who just wants to learn to fly for the sake of it, I think this type of license is just perfect.

What do you think? Do anyone here has this license? How is your experience?

I've looked into it and thought it would be too limited for myself and have also been told to just skip over it and go for the PPL, but if it seems to fit what you want to do, I say go for it!
