    Some great advice there guys... lets hope that in 3 - 5 years some form of harmonisation will have occured between the JAR and FAA IR rating.

    Just to clear something up that when you read the post sounds confusing.
    A valid IR in FAA lands means you have one, currency on the other hand means you can use it. A question you will get alot in FAA land is "Are you current?" meaning the 6 approachs in 6 months thingy. I have to look up the JAR currency because I'm not sure what they even are.

    As an aside to this topic, but not unconnected, I was interested to see on a link from the IAOPA page on Lionel's post the following info under 'Ireland':

    The Old Cottage
    Rathdown Road

    Do either of these 2 gentlemen frequent this forum? Is this information out of date?

    On a further aside, also relevant to the PPL/IR issue; some of the best 'returns' to the recent UK Dept of Transport proposal to ban foreign reg aircraft are at this link on the website of a most interesting Australian Gentleman based in the UK, Mr Boyd Munro who co-ordinated a lot of the replies:
