EASA PPL Theory exams - can be taken in any EASA state
This seems to be the rule now, so long as they are all taken in one state.
I know that in Ireland the PPL exams can only be taken once every two months in Dublin with the IAA.
Is this the norm across EASA land, and is the UK is the only country which has devolved sitting the exams to Examiners ?
If so it would suggest some advantage here and there may be demand from students in other other EASA states to do exams at a time of their own convenience in the UK.
Browsing the Net shows AOPA Denmark complaining that it can cost up to 1,000 euros to take their exams (with their Dept of Transport - they got rid of their CAA !). That is a figure that is quite easy to make some savings on !
The wording on the AMC for Theory exams talks about students being "approved" by an ATO to take their exams, which suggests the EASA rule makers assume that the PPL ground exams are taken at the local CAA in the same way the higher level exams are.
Does anyone know what the situation is in different European countries ?
