EASA LPC

Hi guys,

Furloughed myself too. Just did my skill test on B777 to remove the Chinese aircraft only restriction from my licence. Had a hard time about PBN also with the issuing authority. Found a way to do all for a pretty economic deal.

Watch you recency not to expire >1 year, or additional training is needed. Give me a PM if you want some advice on revalidating your EASA licence.

Regards

Do you know if that is the same for UAE restrictions?

If I'm not mistaken, it's the same procedure for every country, provided that you have an EASA license with a restricted type rating (lifting the restriction, revalidation of an expired rating).

Hi guys
I am curious what do You mean “country’s planes restricted TR”? How did You input this TR in the license?
I am not EASA license holder

There’s a Captain, B777/787 TRE that works for CAE and other entities as a freelance with whom I did many simulators for me and for others in the past that can do any kind of renewals and remove the “operator’s restriction” with a single session, if someone’s interested PM me

I sent Range73 a pm, good information, it's not that simple as you also need a PBN endorsement, which cannot be done by a freelance examiner like suggested by Jack330.

I'm getting it done as to have a fall back if I get furloughed as well, tough times for everyone!

Answered some of you guys via PM to share knowledge I acquired revalidating my licence. My advice: Don't wait too long, keep a bullet in the barrel. You don't want to answer a job offer in this market, that you have an expired or restricted licence. PBN is a bit of a headache if you have not acquired it before, pretty much renders you IR rating useless without.

Regards

EU citizens/residents can convert their ICAO licence (UAE/PRC) to an EASA licence, the simple way gives you an EASA licence but it is restricted to operate only aircraft of the original country, you can get the restriction removed to make it a normal EASA licence, handy to have with all the layoffs. I had mine done last year.

Not only EASA citizens/residents. Everyone may have it. But remember, all aviation jobs in EU requires the right to live and work on it.

Thanks, can you elaborate as my current understanding is the only way to convert ATPL from here into EASA can only be done by sitting all 14 exams again.

Not always. You need to get in contact with your CAA and/or ATO to get specific information. I can refer you if you send a PM.

Cheers

I'm almost positive that sitting all 14 exams is a requirement to convert ICAO to a full unrestricted EASA license. Exemptions for experience are long gone, the only consideration given would be one doesn't need to go though an ATO to sit exams. (Hint: it's all about money.)

If certain EASA member states don't require the exams I am curious to hear which one(s) they are.

What are you trying to say? 14 exams are mandatory there is no special workaround for this. If there is something I’m missing, brilliant and please show us.

I am aware that OP is talking about LPC and removing restriction so maybe these are two separate issues?

What I understood from the info from the OP, if you already have an EASA ATPL with for example a B737 rating and are now flying B777 or A380 in the UAE or any other 3rd country you can convert your 3rd country type rating to a full EASA unrestricted type rating without doing a full typerating course, saving a lot of money.

I am looking at doing this for my B777/787

That is correct, the only thing you need is an ATO that doesn't try to squeeze te last dollar from your wallet. Happy I got my EASA in order so the bullet is in the barrel again when things turn for the better.

Actually the EASA regulations just changed this month, yes you can convert certain 3rd country ICAO licences to an EASA licence without any theoretical exam, even without a previous EASA licence!!!!!

Does anyone have info on updating and converting an expired JAR licence to EASA? 14 exams previously passed for the JAR license, but since things were fine and I was happy I had decided to stay till I was ready to go and then retire. That wasn’t too many years away and as such I wasn’t worried......now I have found myself at the wrongs end of the stick
