Just have a quick question to ask. My SEP expires on the 7th of April, but I will be out of the country for a few months and won't be able to get the cert of revalidation signed. However I have all the requirements meet already such as 12 hours etc. As I am going to Dublin tomorrow for my medical I am wondering if I make a quick detour to aviation house would they be able to sort it out for me or is it to early to get it revalidated? Thanks in advance
Is it possible that I don't have to send anything to Gatwick - just get a signature from an examiner to say I've completed the 12 hours etc? Anyone got an authoritative source of information?
Any JAR / EASA flight examiner can sign the CAA SEP revalidation, and any other rating for that matter. If using an Irish examiner, s/he should give you a copy of his/her licence details, which, along with the appropriate CAA form for a rating renewal / revalidation, should then be sent to the CAA in Gatwick. And of course the important thing is that the ratings page in your licence be signed!
If you cannot find an examiner easily (which shouldn't be the case), you can also send your logbook, and the CAA form to the CAA for them to revalidate the rating. But for a signature this way there is of course a fee of £80 (!!!).
at least 6 hours PIC
1 hour dual with a JAA instructor (signed by him)
12 takeoffs and landings
Then, within the 3 month period preceding expiry if you want to the rating renewal date to remain the same), you take your logbook and licence with a copy of the following form to a JAA Examiner
You fill in sections 1 and 2 and the Examiner fills in section 3.
Then he signs the ratings page of your licence.
If the Examiner is IAA the you will also need to fill out the corresponding revalidation form for the IAA for their records. Then simply post off the completed SRG1119 to Gatwick. There is no fee for a revalidation by experience.
If you want your Language Proficiency signed off then the Examiner can sign section 6. Apparently he has to have flown with you in order to assess your proficiency, it's not just a case of being a native speaker and chatting with him. Otherwise technically you would have to complete the equivilant of a CAA radio licence practical in order to do it get it assessed. Depends on the Examiner.
