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!

Why not just apply, including your last LPC in your application.

My LPC is not due for some time, and I believe a lot of examiners are confused in relation to cross crediting.

Some say an examiner needs to be licensed in a SEP/MEP category in order to cross credit, but this actually isnt an EASA rule but individual aviation agency.

So hard to tell. For me this would be an easier option as it would save money and time.

As rudestuff says, you can cross credit your MPA IR for the renewal of a SE IR in accordance with FCL Annex 1 Appendix 8. You must have held a single pilot IR previously (this excludes MPL holders). You can fly the procedures with an FI/IRI if you don't hold a rating allowing flight under IFR, eg. an IMC/IR(R).

When you've met the requirements, find an IRE or CRE/IRR to complete the renewal paperwork and post to the NAA for issue.

Provided that within the preceding 12 months the applicants have flown at least three IFR departures and approaches exercising PBN privileges, including at least one RNP APCH approach on an SP class or type of aeroplane in SP operations.

If this is revalidation, and all criteria have been already been met, can a TRE sign the paperwork and license?

It would make sense to get both signed at the same time: MPA/IR & SPA/IR.

Double check with your NAA, I believe the UK CAA don't allow it (unless the TRE is also an IRE or CRE/IRR).
