Once you let it lapse the only way to re-instate is to do the ride over.

Yes , thought so , but its quite easy when there . Maybe a quick multiple answer test then a check ride with examiner if I remember correctly. If there are no current CFI over here I may get busy doing BFR,s myself ! ( I think a BFR only needs CFI and not examiner)

Can recommend someone based in Peterborough if any help? Not sure which part of Yorkshire you're in but he might travel if beer included in the deal!

Let me know and I'll pm his details if you want.

HT.

I once heard that a Fixed Wing FAA instructor can do a rotary BFR? Not sure if they need a rotary rating too? Try asking Taf at Breighton.

Nope---can only do category and class on your certificate...unless of course it has changed in the last 20 years.
