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!

SFI/SFE

I am very shortly going to reach 65 and therefore retirement from active commercial flying duties. I am the holder of an UK issued EASA ATPL, current type rating and class one medical, and wanting to become an SFI/SFE. I was previously a TRI/TRE but now expired. Have looked around various publications but cannot find a definitive answer to the following : As a SFI/SFE post 65 years old, will I need to maintain a current ATPL with class one medical and still be type rated to act as an SFI/SFE on that type ? If you could point me in the direction of the correct publications would be most grateful. Thanks in advance for any help on this.

Part FCL is nobody’s friend. It is disjointed in many areas and poorly indexed and so a nightmare to just pick up to get a definitive answer to a question.

I do apologise.

The important words are ‘have held’.

You don’t need a medical for SFE / SFI. It is all in EASA regs.
