Need some help please. In a nutshell, I stopped flying in 2012. I had my PPL, Night rating, ATPL theory and I was just at the end of my CPL training ready to take flight test, when I like many hit financial disaster. After getting so far I was literally heartbroken to give it all up.
Anyway, Here I am again, take 2. I've to retake the Class 1, ATPL theory, flight training, and the associated flight tests.
If someone can advise me please -
Firstly, I've got a JAR/JAA PPL with lapsed SEP rating. Is my PPL still Valid to undertake the ATPL theory or do I need the SEP for it to be valid?
Secondly, is it possible to have some of my previous CPL hours credited towards the CPL/Multi IR flight training or will I have to start from scratch
I rang the IAA but didn't get a clear answer to be honest.
