I'll save the cash by keeping the ME IR going.

Maybe Independence will help 😇: staying within EASA contrary to UK Gov. announcement re UK leaving EASA.

Unless "continent" is more competitive than UK right now?[/QUOTE]

I’m unsure what you mean by ‘’not here in Scotland’ if you have never had a type rating on your EASA issued licence, you will need it end of story. Airlines are pulling offers to people who don’t have it done by a certain date. Flybe themselves told me they wouldn’t issue a type rating start date for me until I provided them with the certificate. It’s an EASA/CAA mandated rule and won’t change.

When the UK CAA leaves EASA I don’t see them reverting back to not requiring it as that would make their standards lower than EASA.

Hi. I meant that the hiring situation up here is not good for the forseeable future - according to the Loganair HR email a fortnight ago. They are focussing on ATR rated crews and now the Flybe hotline.

The market is not competitive here unless you are already Type Rated. And just to add fun to it all we’ve an election due by 6th May 2021 which if the SNP wins will for sure (understandably) result in push for IndyRef2.

It is part and parcel of FTE JEREZ (f)ATPL / MPL (dormant) courses on their T67 / ROBIN, and has been for a number of years.
You don’t have to have been a “fast jet skygod” to deliver this part of the syllabus. Although given the degrading (aka watering down) of majority of training since CAP509, it would be true to say ex A2 instructors will be in the majority of competent FIs able to deliver it.

Shouldn't all the ATO's which are ATPL (integrated) providers, include advanced UPRT on their syllabus by default? It seems to be dictated on Regulation (EU) 2018/1974 Appendix 3, Section A...

Hi, I have a query and hopefully someone will be able to advise or have first hand knowledge. I have completed my type rating earlier this year although the course did not include the new advanced UPRT course. I passed the type rating although I am told now that the AURPT needs to have been passed and completed before passing the type rating. Does this mean I will have to do my type rating again?

Is the type rating in your license?
If yes, then you never have to worry about MCC, and AUPRT in your career.

thanks for replying so quickly Hawker.

No it’s not on my licence but LST is done and only base training missing before sending to NAA.

Type rating has to have been on your licence before 20th December 2019 I believe. If so then no UPRT is required.

If you still need to submit it to be added then they will most likely ask you for the UPRT cert upon submission.

It’s not actually a requirement to do the type rating course but it is a requirement in order for the type rating to be applied to your licence by the relevant authority.
