FIC aeros course needed urgently

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!

FIC aeros course needed urgently

I've just finished getting a fellow FI up-to-speed on Aeros but he can't find an FIC instructor who's able to do the course to remove the no-aeros restriction. Everyone he's tried to contact in the S is either booked-up for the foreseeable future or doesn't return calls.
Any suggestions?

Have you tried DEFTS or Ultimate high at Kemble.

I dont know for sure but have been told they do "aero FI".

A couple of points and a question:

The privileges of a JAA Flight Instructor rating do not include the teaching of aerobatics (JAR-FCL 1.330) and so a 'no aerobatics' restriction is a strange, archaic and peculiarly UK anomaly that is not supported in law.

You need a Flight Instructor rating only to teach towards the issue or renewal/revalidation of a licence or rating (ANO Article 36(2)) but there is no aerobatic rating and, therefore, you do not need a Flight Instructor rating to teach aerobatics.

Why would your friend want to remove the completely illegal 'No aerobatics' restriction from his FI rating? It would not add to the rating the privilege of teaching aerobatics and, in any case, he can, quite legally, teach aerobatics to an appropriately licensed and type/class rated pilot without an FI rating, as I have been doing for many a long year.
