Except in exceptional cases, training for issue of the initial licence must be carried out on an aircraft that has no more than four seats. When selecting the type of training aircraft, several things other than cost should be considered, not least of which is weight and balance limits, comfort, and what the nature of the pilot’s expected flying will be (hour building, carrying family/friends, just carrying one other person, availability of aircraft for self fly hire, purchasing an aircraft etc).
