I'd like to try for a SSEA but the biggest issue/concern for me would be the continued allowance to fly the likes of PA28s / C172s.
If that goes then for me the use of SSEA would likely go as well. (I don't have much likelihood of owning/shared owning a aircraft anytime soon and so am limited to renting from the likes of flying clubs/schools).
I could always try for a EASA PPL - though it just seems like a waste (from a money and time point of view) if already qualified/under-going training in some capacity to do everything from scratch.
On the other hand - I'd hope it'd be possible to at-least manage sub 50 hours to a full PPL as you should be able to take some of that existing knowledge and apply it to heavier aircraft!
