Flight Time Limitation and Part-Time Instructor

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!

Flight Time Limitation and Part-Time Instructor

Hi there folks,

I fly for an airline and I want to instruct part-time as well.

Can anyone tell me if the instructor hours count towards the annual limit and if I am required by law to report them to my airline? If so, can you point me to the relevant documents and is there a way around it? I have the days off, not so much the hours. We fly a lot.

FTL/Instructing

Skipname.

Have a word with your Fleet Manager first and discuss it.
Some airlines donít mind p/t. instructing provided it doesn't interfere with your main job.
Later, some might even consider your instructional experience when you apply for a Training post.

I did it with permission but the hours werenít included in the Airline cap.
Sufficient rest is the key factor. Perhaps you wonít feel like it after a heavy Summer and/or youíve got a family ?
Maybe just fly enough instructional hours to maintain your F.I Rating ?

Maybe, but in my experience the answer is likely to be 'no' - it's the easy answer and avoids all kinds of issues with your day job ...

That is exactly what I am afraid of. When I'll talk with him about it, I want to be able to show him that the part time flight instructing won't have any interference in my day job or reduces the number of hours I can fly for them.

I sow in the new EASA FTL which we recently adopted that it's not applicable to aerial work or single pilot operations. Is that enough to stand on or there are other documents?

I was talking with a captain and he said that he remembers something about a weight limit (1600 kg) but he's not sure where he sow that. Does anyone know anything about this?

I am guessing you're in the UK since you mention the 1,600kg limit which forms part of the FTL legislation contained in the UK ANO (Article 144). There has recently been a CAA review which included public consultation over the intermix of EASA FTLs with non-commercial operations and the proposal to align the UK ANO with these. The associated CAA Comment Reponse Document is overdue and should be published soon.

CAP 1271 GA ANO Review

CAP 1335 GA ANO Review Final - see page 19.

Hi Skip

You're quite right you need to talk to your manager about this. One potential gotcha is that even if the hours don't count then instructing may invalidate a day off under your FTL scheme. That might be a show stopper if you're working hard.

Good luck.
