Let's also be careful how we interpret French legislation. That article authorises the Minister of Aviation to accept the use of an NPPL, it does not authorise a pilot to use an NPPL.
The Minister did accept the use of an NPPL in AIC A 13/10
, which you quoted previously, but it is no longer in effect. It was withdrawn, quite logically, when the LAPL was introduced and could be obtained by NPPL holders through a simple paper exercise.
There is no question that an NPPL is valid to fly homebuilts in France. All I have done, and only to convince the doubters, is seek confimation that a UK CAA Part-FCL LAPL is also valid.
