Weird as it might seem, I'm not 100% sure what airplanes I can fly with an EASA PPL(A) license. During the training the instructors would tell me that I can fly airplanes up to 2000 kg MTOW and 5 passengers or so, but I think they are wrong and this applies only to the (old) national rules (Germany in this case).
The license states that I have a SEP (land) class rating. I have searched through the EASA rules (a cumbersome task on its own) and nowhere could I find a weight or passenger limit, nor a specific definition of what exactly qualifies as a SEP.
So the question is, what aircraft am I entitled to fly with my PPL(A) license? Do aircraft with specificities such as a retractable gear fall into the same category? Please also point to the source of the applicable legislation.
By the same token, may I/may I not fly light aircraft such as e.g. a K-10 Swift?
