Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

I believe the Easter Bunny did it, September when things are quiet for both of them! Test flights on the sleigh then made sure he stayed current.

Neither of them knew what should go in his licence though, and despite sending it in for conversion mid summer Poor Santa still hasn't received his new EASA licence back.

The French aren't happy - they are sure he's over 60, but still allow him to fly in command in their airspace.

The argument is he doesn't fly public transport in the airways - and the sleigh isn't a 'powered' aircraft.

EASA are trying to rein him in however. Oh deer, oh deer.
