Licence Requirements – Further information

To maintain a valid Type Rating, a Licence Proficiency Check (LPC) must be conducted prior to the expiry of the current Type Rating. If the Type Rating has expired then we will design a course of refresher training to satisfy Part-FCL requirements before the LPC. Please email to discuss this further.

Guidance only notes – for up-to-date information please see CAA Guidance for pilots

COVID-19 revalidation of a rating

There is an exemption for commercial pilots who are unable to revalidate a rating, complete required training and other checking or renew their medical due to the current Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent prevention policies.


Renewals are beyond the scope of this exemption, which only applies to current rating/certificates. Any rating/certificate which expires at the end of March is covered by the exemption. Any rating or medical certificate that has already expired is not covered. Normal procedures apply when a rating has already expired.

Initial Issues

The current exemption does not cover initial issues. However, the CAA have issued a new temporary certificate that allows pilots who have passed their skills test for a new rating, CPL, MPL or ATPL, an additional six months to get their license issued.

If you need any refresher training we can help you and we offer combined training and check detail either using the FFS or combination of the FFS and FBS for refresher training.

Simulator & Training Social Distancing information

To mitigate against Covid-19. In the general office and admin areas we employ a six foot / two meter rule amongst staff and customers. Washrooms and kitchen/facilities should be a one person use at a time. Hand sanitiser is available in briefing rooms and reception area. We would request all pilots to first wash their hands prior to training. Between each simulator detail there is a strict wipe down and clean policy of surfaces within the simulator and we have temporarily stopped the use of headsets. In sim breaks (if required or seat changes) we also allow extra time for wipe down of respective areas.

Airflow inside the simulators has been adjusted from 20% recirc to full change which *may* help to reduce transmission (the air is filtered / conditioned and pulled out of the simulator away from instructors and pilots at a negative pressure) as apposed to partly being recirculated. The side effect of this is slightly dryer air in the simulator cabins. Anyone in the training facility is free to wear face masks but we do not provide these. If you have concerns or questions about this please ask prior to training.
