« Reader's Answer―CAA now accepting French medicals | Main | Reader's Question―Robin 3000 Information »

16 March 2014



My understanding is that, currently, the ULM and PPL type licences in France are wholly separate entities.

If you have a current PPL then obtaining a French ULM licence should be just a few check flights, your FAA medical may well be sufficient, but if not the French medical for ULM is very simple and cheap.

As I may be wrong about the above I’d suggest you call Phillippe Boucherat at Montpezat, one of the largest ULM site in SW France. His email is: -


Contact details are on his web site (ulmstex.com) and he speaks good English; probably best not to call on a Monday.

Best of luck
