License expired

Unread postby Cenrifugel » Fri Dec 22, 2017 11:13 am

Hi, can someone help me with this. My ATPL has an expiry date of 2019, however my last flight test and IF renewal was in May 2014. In order for me to renew my license do i just do a medical and flight test or am I required to sit an airlaw exam.

Thank you for your time

Hi CF,

Not quite in the same boat as you but my situation may be able to give you some help.

I held an ATPL issued in 2009 and my last renewal was done in 2010 or so and have not filed anything since then. As it has been explained to me...as my license has lapsed for more than 60 months then I have to write Law & Ops Procedures again and conduct a skills test.

In your case, I would imagine you could just do renewal and medical and should be OK?

Aviation Assist has been very helpful and will file applications for exams and renewals on my behalf, I can recommend them for any assistance and perhaps they can better answer their questions.

Cheers.

(a)the date of reissue; or
(b)the beginning of the month following the date of—
(i)expiry of the maintenance of competency if such maintenance of competency is revalidated within 90 days immediately prior to expiry; or
(ii)revalidation of such maintenance of competency if revalidated prior to the period referred to in subparagraph (i).

(a)in the case of a holder of an ATPL where the maintenance of competency has lapsed by not more than 36 months, the licence holder shall be required to—
(i)undergo sufficient ground and flight training at an approved ATO to reach the standard required for the revalidation check of an ATPL(A), and meet the recency requirements to act as PIC; and
(ii)pass a revalidation check in the same category of aircraft;

(3) The holder of an ATPL(A) who has not flown a minimum of 3 hours as either PIC or PICUS, or 6 hours as co-pilot in the 6 months preceding a revalidation check, shall undergo sufficient ground and flight training at an approved ATO to reach the standard required for the revalidation check of a ATPL(A), and meet the recency requirements to act as PIC.


Assuming your maintenance of competency lapsed in May 2015, you have until May 2018 before you need to rewrite airlaw too...
