Motor glider licence

A motor glider is a fixed-wing aircraft that can be flown with or without engine power. Build usually on the same airframe as a standard glider but equipped with a propeller which allows self launching, moving to area with better thermals conditions or flying as a regular airplane (TMG - touring motor glider) In matter of fact applicants must comply requirements similar to PPL but with following benefits:

  • Less demanding medical examination – can be done by a local medical practice approved by AME
  • Flight time only 20 hours required
  • Much lower cost in comparison to PPL
  • Less theoretical knowledge needed for the final exam

Our flying school uses a motor glider build Czechoslovakia L-13 SE “VIVAT” in an impressive Arabic desert camouflage. TMG license allows you to conduct only non-commercial flights on any TMG plane. Motor glider pilots usually fly for pleasure, soaring or making navigation flights. On high performance planes such as Stemme S-10, ASH-25, etc. many world records in soaring were achieved. When TMG plane is flown by a commercial pilot that can be used for aerial photography or making sightseeing flights.
