Hi All,

Just thought I would update you and maybe help someone else in the process.

I received an email from the CAA stating that hours flown are hours flown, whether they be on NPL, PPL or neither. If you fly 70 hours to receive your NPL. all 70 will count towards a CPL, provided the airplane is above 450kg.

And as for another question I had about minimum instrument requirements (I was told one of the airplanes I was looking at had inadequate instruments initially :roll: ), I also received an email from the CAA stating that as long as the airplane is above 450kg and is certified to fly, then the instruments are adequate for hour-building towards a CPL, whatever they may be. Which makes 100% sense, of course.

It took me about 3-4 months to eventually get something in writing from them, and a lot of arguing, but finally.......
...great to hear, keep those mails for proof in future disagreements!
