The biggest difference between a Pilot License and the other levels of certification consists of what is permissible to fly. Upon earning this certification, you will be qualified to handle and operate all LSA (Light-Sport Aircraft). This category is limited to simple aircraft with a maximum weight of 1,320 lbs. When flying recreationally with a Pilot License, the need for height doesn't generally exceed 10,000 ft, hence that particular restriction. With this certification, you can command single passenger aircraft, such as gliders, balloons, and paraplanes. The opportunities for a thrilling pastime are endless.
