View Full Version : Conversion costs

10th Feb 2016, 15:57
Hi there guys and girls,

I am in the process of converting my NZ CPL to the European version.

I would like to know of somewhere to do around 10 hours practice for my CPL skills test and around 20 hours towards the IFR.

Does anyone know of a place in either England or France where this can be done at a reasonably low cost (I say that while trying not to choke on my beer).

Any advice?

Try Airways Flight Training at Exeter Airport. Lovely people, specialise in tailoring courses for licence conversion. CPL, MEP, IR etc

Cheers TOO, Ill give them a call.
I have heard Poland is a good spot to get it done too, does anyone have advice on that area?

Hi, I will start mine in nfc in few weeks, prices are much cheaper than UK, don't know for Poland.


The CPL would be 6 hours @ €285 plus (budget) 10hours ground @ €50 per hour.
The ME and IR would be €485 for the aircraft and €170 for the sim. Again, ground is €50 per hour.

Hire of the aircraft for test is at the rates quoted above.
Examiner Fees are payable to (and controlled by) the examiner themselves – I have no idea how much they are at the moment.
Fees are also payable to the IAA for the issue of the licence and subsequent ratings. See www.iaa.ie/fees (http://www.iaa.ie/fees)

That's the price given few months ago.
