Due to weather, I'm pushing it to complete my 12 hours required for to keep my licence valid. I need another 4 before the end of this month. (September 19) For the last few years I've been flying tailwheel only and currently hiring a Supercub.

I'm in Ipswich, is there any examiners in the area who could do the test for me plus provide the aircraft? Please PM.

Thanks

If you’re talking about Linda Smith, she’s no longer instructing at Old Buck. I believe she’s now at Tibenham. Brian Salter does instruct at Old Buckenham and is an examiner, but I think mainly instructs at Seething. Might be worth calling John or Joff at Old Buck Aero Club for a definitive answer...

If you have done the required hours you only need an FI or CRI (with .945 Sign off on their licence). You don’t need an examiner - or a proficiency check. You only need these if you haven’t done enough hours to qualify for “revalidation by experience”.

Understood - cheers.
