• Experience requirements, flight instruction and theoretical knowledge training

    To qualify for a single-engine (single pilot) aeroplane class rating, you must complete an appropriate training course at an approved training organisation (ATO) or registered training facility (RTF).

    Revalidation

    To revalidate the rating you must complete the following:

    • Pass a proficiency check in a single-engine (single-pilot) aeroplane with an examiner. The proficiency check must take place within the 3 months immediately before the rating’s expiry date; or
    • 12 hours of flight time in single-engine (single-pilot) aeroplane within the 12 months preceding the rating’s expiry date, including the following:
      • 6 hours as pilot-in-command (PIC)
      • 12 take-offs and landings
      • a training flight of at least 1 hour (or a maximum of three totalling 1 hour) with the same flight instructor or class rating instructor. If you have already completed a proficiency check or skill test in another type or class of aeroplane, you will not have to complete this training flight.

    Note: If you hold valid ratings written on your licence for both TMG and SEP, when you revalidate you may use the same flight time for both.
