I have been searching the Forum up and down for any conversations on PPL Renewal.
I currently hold a full ATPL with a valid type rating.
My SE Class rating expired last Jan (2009) and had been issued 24 months earlier in 2007. During this time i flew 30-40 hours in SE aircraft here in Ireland but was unaware of the need for a revalidadion flight... DOH!
Now according to the IAA i have to do a PPL renewal which on top of a/c rental etc is going to cost me 430 euro.
Is there any cheaper way of doing it or anyone that can sign me off in anyway? Comments/PM's much appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
(ii) within the 12 months
preceding the expiry of the rating
complete 12 hours flight time in a single
engine piston aeroplane or touring
motor glider including:
(A) 6 hours of pilot-incommand
(B) 12 take-offs and 12
(C) a training flight of at
least one hour’s duration with a
FI(A) or CRI(A). This flight may
be replaced by any other
proficiency check or skill test.
So of those 30-40 hours if you have met the requirments given above, including the hour with a FI, then I assume that you just have to send in the paperwork. Otherwise you will need a skills test for renewal.
Edit to add: Since you have a full ATPL then I assume that at some stage in the previous 12 months you would have also revalidated your ME,IR and Type Ratings. As you can see from point (C) above this counts.
