Re: PPL ground school Instructor ?

You have to hold or have held at least a PPL - no need to be an flight instructor
However I believe you do have to be an RTF (or ATO under EASA) so there will be some requirements for that

On the otherhand, the CAA will issue a UK JAA licence with an Irish Medical. Anyone correct me if Im wrong! LC It is a requirement (currently) that yo...

Re: English Language Proficiency

Hi Gerry Whatever about the ELP, you do make a good point about the RT license requirement in the UK - I went through this system, where there was both a written and an oral exam .... and I actually do believe we should have an oral exam here in Ireland to ensure a reasonable level of competency on ...
