We've got a British friend, resident in France, holding a French JAR PPL, visiting later this month. Besides a checkout with our group instructor (SEP), and confirming our insurance cover, are there any other requirements/considerations they should meet to fly a G-reg a/c in the UK?

He has to run round the airfield in his boxer shorts, eat a raw onion and show his bum to the tower.
Post flight he needs to provide huge amounts of french wine for the rest of the group.

Friend is of the female persuasion, so maybe have to settle for the wine....and pre-arrival briefing might include advice to be cautious about a visit North of the Border? :)

Swap thong for boxer shorts and your good to go.
Joking aside as long as the insurance is happy your legal.
We are very friendly up North if she should choose to visit.

You might like to check that he has English Proficiency on his French licence if he wants to use the radio!
