CPL ME IR in one EASA state and Licence issued by another

PPL Licence

So just a quick one as a couple of people have messaged me about doing your CPL ME IR in one EASA state and Licence issued by another. This is a straight forward one for once (feels weird saying that about anything to do with licencing in aviation) but it actually is.

It’s been a while and a few of you have messaged to see what the latest is, so I thought I would give a quick post training update.

The CAA say my licence is ready, they just can’t send it to me

PPL Licence

I had a call from the UK CAA yesterday and the CAA say my licence is ready, they just can’t send it to me. I never seem to have a smooth experience when dealing with the UK CAA.

Suspending the class 1 medical

So, I have recently had experience with suspending the class 1 medical. As well as going through the ATPL theory hell over the last 2 years, I have also been going through orthodontic work that cumulated in jaw surgery this past Wednesday.  This is about as much fun as it sounds and obviously, during this … Read moreSuspending the class 1 medical
