Some of you may have seen my post here: https://forums.flyer.co.uk/viewtopic.php?p=1732683#p1732683
So this was me revalidating my French issued EASA PPL... :thumleft:
Quite painless and the DGAC do this online now.

However, I also have a UK PPL. Which I got as insurance against Brexit.
My question is (up until January 31st or afterwards?) can a UK examiner revalidate my UK PPL by experience based on the hours and instructional flight I made with my French EASA instructor in a french registered aeroplane?

I think so, but thought Id ask just in case...

Regards, SD..

yes, I can't see why not... but what's special about Jan 12th ? (Or do I need to read the link?)

unless the instructor saw your flying and spat in your log book rather than signing it

Thanks Irv, thats what I thought.

I thought I'd written 31st... For some reason it appears it has been auto-modifed to 12th..??. possibly because of my fst funger trible.... :roll:

Regards SD..

PS.. I cant actually read what the instructor wrote next to his signature and FE number... I think it says 'vol de competence"....but as he's an examiner and confirmed my revalidation with me on the DGAC website, and authorised me to do "vol d'initiation" for the aeroclub, presumably it isnt too negative... 8)

Yes I am. Medoc, just north of Bordeaux. I know of a Brit Examiner that frequents the Auch area, though I might find myself in the Aberdeen area in the next couple of months anyway.

I have the EASA licence revalidation, which is my main concern Aeroclub flying here in France, but like the backup of the UK PPL... as has been said on here before "you can never have too many licences".
