    Amer,

    I don’t know where you are, but I assume not in the US. The FAA don’t have a “GPL” or “PPL-A.”

    Most countries have a path from gliders to airplanes of some form. Typical in Europe is from the Glider Pilot License to Touring Motor Glider to Light Aircraft Pilot License (Airplane) or PPL.

    For commercial in Europe you can, if I recall correctly, count ten percent of your gliding time, up to a fairly low number, towards the total required.

    If you are doing this in the US then all your time counts. You just have to meet all the requirements that must be done in a “single engine airplane.”

    Whether you get any credit for it or not, everything you’ve done will help you do better in powered training.
