View Full Version : CRI course requirements

10th Oct 2009, 05:45
Having class ratings as SEP - MEP - IR ME SP - FI - current and many type ratings with ME MP not current and TT 7000 with 6500 ME MP, do you confirm that before starting CRI(mep land) course I shoul have flown 10 hours on MEP in the last 12 months?
Or do I need to be only current on MEP since I'm already a current FI?

If you are an FI then why are you doing the CRI course?

Would it not be better to have the limitation on your licence restricting you to instructing on single engine aircraft removed?

To have that limitation removed you have to meet the requirements of JAR-FCL 1.380 (a)

The 10 hours in the last 12 months you refer to are only applicable to CRI's who want to extend their privileges to another class or Type.
