I apologise if I seem OTT, often the true ramifications of simple changes don’t materialise for many years.
The wording that existed since JAR days was “a training flight of at least 1 hour's duration” and this phrase was incorporated into EASA PART FCL. A proposal to alter the wording so the 1 hour could consist of multiple flights totalling one hour, eg “flight training of at least 1 hour” seems to have morphed into “refresher training of at least 1 hour”
So why did EASA insert the word “refresher”? By doing so they are being deliberately prescriptive. Why?. No one paid much attention when the phrase was used in regards to LAPL but now it has crept in to the PPL.
What is the definition of the word “refresher” in this context if not that already defined in CAP 804 740A?
Could an examiner please clarify the definition
Will the holders of PPL licences issued pre EC 2015-445 get grandfather rights? I think not.
