If the cost difference is £2000 IF you manage to do it in minimum time, what would be the cost on top of that of hiring an aircraft for 10 hours solo at your school/club?
Unless it is for a medical reason, I really don't see why someone would start off down the LAPL route today.
I say this as an LAPL holder who is fine with flying only in the UK.
