Cross class qualification under EASA

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!

Cross class qualification under EASA

I'm hoping that somebody here knows the definitive answer here.


Somebody of my acquaintance has assumed that "differences" experience on gliders automatically reads across to SEP.

Specifically - he thinks that his retractable experience on gliders, and VP prop experience on a retractable engine motorglider reads across to his SEP.

This seems unlikely to me: and not particularly sensible either - but does anybody know for sure?

No licence is required to fly a glider so there is nothing to transfer. Under EASA, sailplanes are in a different Category of aircraft so they are no more transferable to an aeroplane licence than heliccopter differences.

The only area where there may be some commonality, is if you have a TMG rating on a Sailplane licence and a TMG on an Aeroplane licence, then any differences on the TMG should apply to both and one could argue then apply to a valid SEP on the same licence, as experience gained in either class is countable.

FCL.710 Class and type ratings — variants (a) In order to extend his/her privileges to another variant of aircraft within one class or type rating, the pilot shall undertake differences or familiarisation training.
(b) If the variant has not been flown within a period of 2 years following the differences training, further differences training or a proficiency check in that variant shall be required to maintain the privileges, except for types or variants within the single-engine piston and TMG class ratings.
The glider is not in the same Class or Category!

Thanks a lot Whopity - very clear and useful.

Nice when common sense and the regulations seem to match. Doesn't always happen.
