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!

Previous hours

Good Morning, I was flying with a friend on saturday who has come back to flying after a six year lay off with around 24 hours of PPL training, he has recommenced his training, my question is, do the hours count after a gap of six years?

Six Years would mean he did the 24 Hours before September 2012. Hours flown before EASA cannot be counted towards an initial licence.

You can get an exemption until the end op September, but he would have to do everything in the next 2 weeks...

Check IN2017012

The only solution for pilots unable to complete the Skill Test before 30 Sep 2017 will be to apply for an NPPL. But that will have to be obtained before 8 Apr 2018 if it is subsequently to be converted to a Part-FCL LAPL or PPL in order to fly EASA aircraft...

Thank you for the responses, it all makes sense now and I would agree that after 6 years it's better to start afresh!
At least he has the experience which may keep the hours neded to a minimum.
