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 examiner...

good day all

i am a 15 000 hr ATPL (9 000 hrs 737) , in addition i held a grade 1 flight instructor rating and was a SACAA approved flight examiner...
in feb 2020 i was declared medically unfit - this is likely to be permanent!
according to regs in South Africa i am able to do instruction on all FSTD but no testing!

what i would like to know is can "flight examiners" who have lost their flight medicals still test on FSTD's / Aircraft? (in the UK and Europe)

thanks for the help

The European requirements are laid out in Part FCL. To give instruction without a medical the instructor will need to hold a SFI Certificate. To become a SFE the requirements are listed in Part FCL
FCL.1010.SFE SFE Prerequisites
Regulation (EU) 2020/359

(a) SFE(A)
Applicants for an SFE(A) certificate shall comply with all of the following conditions:
(1) in the case of multi-pilot aeroplanes:
(i) hold or have held an ATPL(A) and a type rating;
(ii) an SFI(A) certificate for the applicable type of aeroplane; and
(iii) have at least 1500 hours of flight time as pilots of multi-pilot aeroplanes;

(3) for the initial issue of an SFE certificate, have completed at least 50 hours of synthetic flight instruction as a TRI(A) or an SFI(A) on the applicable type.
