1) 7-years, or once every 5 years for licence renewal?
I thought you needed a current medical and to have had an IR check (within 5 years) to renew your UK-JAR licence when it expires every 5 years? I have been doing my A320-IR once every 5 years in Singapore with a JAA approved TRE... I therefore dont understand what this rule about 7 years is about?
2) Can we finally use 6-monthly local checks to keep our UK licence current with
What I would REALLY like is parity with other EU countries that accept local recurrent 6-monthly sim checks, and give pilots the IR on their EU licence (restricted to B-registered aircraft only). This would then save having to book a sim once every five years....
3) Renewal of medicals before EASA transition on 17th September
I was informed that "if the pilot renews [his medical] after EASA dates with expired JAA [medical], then need to renew all tests, but if with current status then renew whatever is due eg. ECG." Does this mean you effectively have to do an initial Class 1 medical all over again? Do I only have to renew the expired items, or the additional items in a class 1 medical?
