FI(A) refresher seminar EASA

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!

FI(A) refresher seminar EASA

Hi Everyone,

I was hoping someone can help me, for the last few months I have been struggling to find any FI Refresher seminars in Europe. I have booked myself in UK in February, however with Brexit it is not yet known if UK seminars will be recognised by EASA.

Does anyone know of any seminars running in the near future?

Thank you all.
IAA Licence.

To quote the recent CAA Webinars:
The UK will not be an EASA State from 01 Jan 2021
After 01/Jan 2021 the UK will be regarded as a 3rd country by the EU
There is no mutual recognition between the UK/EU on 01 Jan 2021

Rumour has it

Rumour has it that Absolute Pilots in Graz, Austria will be running one soon. I have no association with them, but am considering doing their seminar when it happens. Perhaps if we both ask it may generate some interest from them?
I am not allowed to post links yet, but if you type in their name and then add com onto the end of it you will see their basic landing page.

Check with the IAA. I'm told that another EASA MS has said that they will accept their FIs attending a UK-based FI seminar in 2021.

The February seminar you refer to is both UK and EASA approved.

It is valid for the duration of your FI certficate and thereafter for 12 months from the date of attendance if you let the Certificate expire.

IAA specifically told me CAA UK seminars won't be accepted after 31/12/2020. I had to cancel my space on AOPA one.
Trying other EASA countries nearby.

The mods haven't approved my original post.

The On Track seminar is EASA approved. They have direct EASA approval, their certificate is published on their website and lists "Flight Instructor Renewal Seminar".

Hi. Did that work out. The IAA tell me they have to have EASA cert that specifies delivery remotely for it to count. Did you find any problems?

Thanks to everyone, I managed to do a seminar remotely with NFC in Ireland. However, now struggling to find an EASA ATO approved to do FI renewals in UK....the price was 1500k from one of them.

Tried FTA, they don't have approval for renewals.
