Pilots using Club aircraft who need to buy fuel whilst away from Lydd are reminded that a proper invoice or receipt (showing VAT Reg. No. if in the UK) is required for the Club or the Group to re-claim that expense.
Credit/Debit Card receipts are not sufficientfor pilots to be re-imbursed for such purchases.
Group aircraft fuels should be purchased with the Group’s Card which is available from OPS before your flight.
Thanks to John Tindall (FE) for all his hard work in keeping track of these changes.
Lydd Aero Club
Please note the following, especially if you are close to licence or rating renewal.
It appears that the CAA have not maintained a record of PPLs awarded English language level 6 when revalidating/renewing, either by experience or test.
You will have given this information on each of your revalidation/renewals since 2008 (page 2 of the old SRG1119) but it appears the CAA have not recorded it.
This can be overcome by completing form SRG1199, signed by a Flight Examiner (and possibly Ivan as an RT examiner). Include this form with your licence/rating application.
If you renew a rating that has lapsed longer than 3 years, licence action by the CAA includes changing your licence to an EASA licence.
If and when you change your licence to EASA, only those ratings that are current will be included in the new licence. The lapsed ratings will be recorded “in the back” of the licence.
For a “standard” SEP rating revalidation “by experience”, please complete page 1 and 2 of SRG1119E and page 1 of SRG1157. The FE will also sign these, including level 6 on the SRG1157, and then it is the licence holder’s responsibility to send these to the CAA.
If it’s a “renewal” it requires at least 3 forms, but that’s another story!
The CAA are having great difficulty with this EASA transition, and on your behalf, I feel let down that you/we have diligently completed the paperwork over the last few years, only for them to “lose” important info about the licence holder. The message is, plan early.
From 1 September 2013, the rules governing sittings, etc., outlined below, will be applicable.
A pass in an examination paper will be awarded to an applicant achieving at least 75% of the marks allocated to that paper. There is no penalty marking, no marks will be deducted for an incorrect answer. An applicant has successfully completed the required TK examination for the PPL(A) when they have passed all the required examination papers within a period of 18 months counted from the end of the calendar month when the applicant first attempted an examination.
There is a maximum number ofSIX “sittings”
Definition of a Sitting
A sitting for a PPL is defined as the attendance at an examination centre for the purpose of taking one or more examinations. When taking more than one examination, these must be completed in a maximum of ten consecutive days. Only one attempt at each paper may be made in any one sitting.
A candidate is not compelled to wait until the end of the ten consecutive day period before attempting the re-sit of a failed paper; but, whenever a re-sit is attempted a further sitting will be considered to have commenced.
Validity Period of Examinations
A Pass will be accepted for the grant of a licence during the:
24 months from the date (not month)
of successfully completing ALL the TK examinations below:
