If you are flying an aircraft in commercial air transport or carrying passengers, there are a number of restrictions that will apply on what role you can occupy on the flight, unless you have completed the relevant requirement set out in the table below:
In the preceding 90 days, you must have completed at least 3 take-offs, approaches and landings in an aircraft of the same type or class or a full flight simulator (FFS) representing that type or class.
You must complete the 3 take-offs and landings in either multi-pilot or single-pilot operations, depending on the privileges you hold
You must have completed either:
When you have multiple types of aeroplane on your licence, if any of them have similar handling and operational characteristics, it may be possible to satisfy the requirement for 3 take-offs, approaches and landings by flying only one of them. The individual operational suitability data of the types in question will contain information as to whether the types are considered similar enough for the purposes of meeting the requirement.
When you have multiple non-complex helicopters on your licence, if any of them have similar handling and operational characteristics, it may be possible to satisfy the requirement for 3 take-offs, approaches and landings by flying only one of them, provided you have completed at least 2 hours of flight in each of the types during the preceding 6 months. EASA has grouped the relevant similar types for the purposes of this requirement.
