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!

FI Renewal

Hi All,

My FI(A) is about to expire and although I'm not actually using it at the minute I was thinking about renewing it before expiry. I'm a little confused as before in LASORs it mentioned having 15 hours of instructing within the last 12 months of the rating validity which I don't have. However FCL.940.FI suggests that I just need 50 hours instructing withing the validity of the rating (Which I do have) and it doesn't mention anything in the previous 12 months unless IR privileges are required.

Which is it?

Far from being a suggestion, that is now the law. LASORS is DEAD and buried.

As I thought but every FI examiner I've spoke to has said I need to go away and do either 15 hours instructing or a Seminar as well as proficiency test. Just to confirm I have over 50 hours instruction within the validity of the rating.

If you did a Seminar last time then you must do a Prof Check this time; if you did a Prof Check last time, you can do either a Seminar or Prof Check.

I think that illustrates the level of confusion caused by the total lack of coherent communication from the CAA. Maybe that's to justify the new Examiner Standardisation courses!

Have you tried "On-Track Aviation"?
Their website states FI Renewal requirements straight out of Part-FCL
