Australian to UK PPL

Hi all,

I have a now not current Australian PPL which I would like to convert to the UK equivalent as I now live in London.

If anyone undergone a similar process and can recommend any instructors near London that would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

He possibly won't be able to PM you, with only a couple of posts under his/her belt.

No, Article 7 is an EASA document and the UK has left EASA and the EU.
UK licences are available and you will not need the 100 hours. The licence type (UK PPL, NPPL, etc) and exact requirements have undergone several changes recently, your local flying school should know the latest situation.

True, but the Regulation has been retained in UK law (see CAP 2024A00) and so Whopity is correct.
