Well it is a Ray of Hope easily extinguished if Mr Ky decided his predecessor had gone too far and let it disappear as quietly and secretly as it was inserted in the first place. I haven't looked for this particular clause since it was quietly slipped in between the 26-1 State vote against the Basic Lapl in early Autumn and the December publication of FCL for the 1st time in whatever year it was. It may have gone, if so it is a shame, as it provided evidence that Easa was prepared to let individual States have something special that other States didn't have to recognise. This might even have been used as a precedent to justify keeping the imc rating as an IR/R, I don't know.
It was the ability of individual States to decide a Lapl course didn't have to go the whole hog if safety cases and risk assessments were made for individual students, in which case, the individual was subject to various limitations defined by the State and could only fly in that State.
If this provision wasn't withdrawn, I see scope in this, individual safety cases being made much easier by proof that someone had already been flying with another licence and ten hours credit being a big step to an early terminated course.
If the provision has gone, and not been replaced with something on those same lines, and pilots with hundreds of hours p1 in Sep style aircraft can only get ten hours credit on a whole initial non icao lapl course, then we have final confirmation of the anti GA side of EASA. All part of the GA roadmap we are supposed to believe exists but not seen much in practice on the Sep side yet?
