Useful Information if you have a License Extension. If you have received a license extension and are looking to revalidate it in the coming months, there are a few things you need to know. Firstly, a revalidation is where your license is still current and has not lapsed after 1 year. A renewal is where your license has expired after 1 year but less than 3 years and you are looking to make your license current again. A renewal requires an ATO to sign off on this and you may require training before.
Useful bit of information:
If your license expired within 90days or less
- You may require some minor refresher training prior to completing an LPC. In some cases you wont need any for example if you have been flying on another license under a different authority.
If your license expired more than 90 days but less than 1 year
- You require a minimum of 2 refresher training sessions prior to completing an LPC
If your license expired more than 1 year but less than 3 years
- You require a minimum of 3 refresher training sessions prior to completing an LPC
If your license expired more than 3 years ago:
- you are required to complete the initial type rating syllabus again prior to completing an LPC.
Now, if you have had a license extension from the CAA the regulations are listed below.
