Revalidate a Multi Pilot Aeroplane Type Rating

How to apply

Description


Holding a type rating allows you to act as pilot on the type of aeroplane specified in the rating.

You must hold a PPL (A), CPL(A) or ATPL(A) licence and have completed the relevant training and testing as defined in CAP804. Section 4 Part H subpart 1.

If you are the holder of an existing UK issued JAR Flight Crew licence or UK PPL(A), CPL(A) or ATPL(A) which has not already been converted to a Part-FCL licence, then this licensing action will result in the compulsory conversion of your existing licence to a Part-FCL licence.

This will require an additional application form / information which will have to be submitted, and additional requirements may have to be met. As such, please refer to the conversion information available on our website in addition to the information on this page.

You must:

  • Have a current and valid licence.
  • Have a current Multi Pilot Type rating on the licence.

    • (i) 10 route sectors as pilot of the relevant type of aeroplane;
      or
    • (ii) 1 route sector as pilot of the relevant type of aeroplane or FFS, flown with an examiner. This route sector may be flown during the proficiency check.

*A pilot working for a commercial air transport operator approved in accordance with the applicable air operations requirements who has passed the operators proficiency check combined with the proficiency check for the revalidation of the type rating shall be exempted from complying with the requirement.
