On the assumption that both you and he operate on JAR licenses then there is no problem.

Re: Tail Wheel

S.P.
Tailwheel differences training takes about 6 hours and because it's training it needs to be through an RTF or FTO. Once completed the instructor makes an entry in your logbook.
It's well worth it as it opens up a whole new fleet of aircraft to you.

Not to my knowledge anyway Hollywood. According to the JAR's you must do an LST with an Examiner. It doesn't have to be in Ireland anywhere in JAR land will do. Not any cheaper in the UK though.
Cheers,

GGGGA,
1.There is no charge to revalidate a SE rating by experience, and
2. An LST is more difficult than an LPC (proficiency check passed during the validity of the rating.)
Hope this helps,

Never was the case in Ireland Pearse1983. It was acceptable in the UK and so we all read about it in Pilot etc. but cost sharing was never legal here.
The prohibition is in now covered by JAR's.
JAR-FCL Section 1 Subpart C-Private Pilots Licence 1.110 (a) Privileges refers.

The answer is obvious Bluebeard...If we don't highlight it then everything can proceed as it always has. If questions are asked about the rights and wrongs then some "do gooder" will get these little benefits stopped!" Just keep on doing it...quietly.
