Which rules apply? Us, uk or French? I thought it all hung on the aircraft reg?
I.e. you squawk 1200, instead of 7000, because you are us and therefore fly us rules?
I was thinking about this and tried to remember back to my air law exam and couldn't.

In simple terms, it is the State of Registry that decides what privileges (if any) a particular set of pilot papers confers on an aircraft of that Registry.
In this case it is the FAA, and the reference is FAR 61.3.
You don't say which country that PPL was issued in, but under 61.3 it is legit to fly an N-reg in the airspace of that country alone.
If the PPL was issued in France then the pilot can fly an N-reg in French airspace only.
The fact that the PPL is JAR-FCL is not relevant.
It's really quite simple once you remember the first principle above.

Then he can fly it in UK airspace only.

And even if he was flying in the Uk he would still have to use 7000 not 1200. Because thats an airspace rule which applys to everyone in it what ever the reg.
