RE: Recommend Trip To Istanbul, Turkey?

I visited Istanbul a few years ago. It's a very interesting city full of history and ancient architecture. The culture and social etiquette will be very different to what you're used to in the states though. It's definitely worth some study prior to visiting. I only visited for a day as it was part ...

Lapl Exam Question

Hi all,

I am working towards my LAPL. I am nearly ready to solo but I haven't done all of my ground exams yet.

Does anyone know if there's a requirement to pass the Air Law ground exam prior to flying solo under LAPL regulations?

Cheers
