Rules on EASA and CAA Licences

I'm currently doing my PPL training in the UK meaning I will get a UK licence, but at the end of the year want to move back home to Ireland for the summer and do my hour building there. What requirements are needed, will I have to get an EASA PPL and if so, what will I need to do.

Please can someone explain the rules and relationship between both licences - it would be a great help.

Thanks.

Ask your instructor. That’s what they’re there for.

Yes you will need to get an EASA licence if you want to fly an Irish registered aircraft. The requirements to convert your UK to an EASA licence are in Regulation 2020/723. Put simply, you will need to retake all the theoretical exams and pass a PPL Skill Test. You might be better off looking for a UK school that has an EASA approval and do both at the same time.

Isn't it just Air Law & Human Performance, not the full set? Link to EU law.

The biggest stumbling block might be the requirement for a minimum of 100 hours of flight time for "conversion" or validation. Depending on how far through the syllabus you are & where you are an alternative might be to train at a UK based EASA ATO, you may even be able to get a UK & EASA licence at the same time.

If you have the 100 hours its just 2 exams but if you don't its all of them.
