UK ATPL to EASA ATPL TRI rating headaches!

Hi All,

Not sure if this is the right area to post this but I'm sure it'll get moved elsewhere as required.

So the scenario is that I hold a UK ATPL(A) and for employment reasons was unable to SOLI my licence to an EASA state prior to 2021.

I have recently gained a Malta issued EASA ATPL(A) which includes my B747-400 type rating, all good so far.

However, I also have a TRI B747 400 rating on my UK ATPL (this was completed earlier this year with a EASA ATO - as the UK are of course still recognising EASA ATO's that were approved prior to 2021 for the 2 year grace period since leaving EASA).

The Maltese have said the only way I can get the TRI B747 400 added to my Malta EASA ATPL(A) is if I complete the whole course again! (naturally for cost reasons I don't want to have to do the whole identical course again!.... it's crazy and shows how stupid this all is!).

Does anyone know of any EASA states who are recognising third country TRI ratings? (my idea being to SOLI my Malta EASA licence to another state and then apply to have the TRI B747 400 rating added - or is this just a crazy idea?). I know the Danish CAA are issuing Danish EASA Instructor and Examiner privileges to holders of third-country certificates via FCL900.

Any ideas would be much appreciated!

If the ATO you did the TRI course with is EASA approved, and you did the AOC with an EASA examiner, can you ask Malta to issue it directly rather than on the basis of your UK TRI?

Then why do the Maltese DCA not recognise an EASA course completed at an EASA ATO? The fact that it is on a UK Part FCL Licence is of no consequence.
What would be different if you do it again?
The whole point of EASA is that each State recognises training conducted by another EASA State

Because the training was completed more than six months ago (that’s the only reason they won’t accept it).

The 6 month requirement applies to the TR Course and Skill test. It does not apply to Instructor Courses!

I think they might be going by FCL.015 (f) "For the issue of a licence, rating or certificate the applicant shall apply not later than 6 months after having succeeded at the skill test or assessment of competence."

I agree it's annoying and an expense I could have done without!
