    Licence Validity

    by nosedive » Tue Feb 02, 2010 10:42 am

    Hi all, licencing question;

    I have a 3-axis microlight licence with a flex wing rating (terminology correct or not I'm sure you get the drift). My problem is that all my flying in the last year or more has been on flexwings and theoretically my 3 axis 'rating' will expire this June.

    My understanding is that my flex flying will keep my licence alive but is there a requirement to do 12 hours (incl instructor hour) every 2 years in both a 3 axis machine AND a flex machine to retain privileges for both or is a microlight licence a microlight licence and only a 'check ride' required should I go back to 3 axis flying after June.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's my understanding that a check ride will suffice.
    Before I moved to the US I was going to do the flex-wing rating for my 3-axis licence.
    But defiantly don't take my word for it, call an instructor, or probably your best bet is to call the IAA
