The renewal procedure of the single-engine piston aeroplanes SEP(land) class rating has to be done in case, when the class rating SEP(land) is expired (out of date).

The renewal procedure at for EASA single engine piston - SEP(land) class rating has to be done by the cooperation with the flight school - ATO (Approved Training Organization), which asses the applicant further training in accordance with the Regulation (EC) 1178/2011, Part FCL, paragraph FCL.740(b)(1):

The single-engine piston - SEP(land) class rating renewal procedure is prescribed by the AMC1 FCL.740(b)(1) to the Part FCL which states, that the EASA flight school - ATO (approved training organization) will estabilish the renewal flight training based on the following criteria:

  • previous experience of the applicant - EASA flight school (ATO - approved training organization) for its verification by an evaluation of the data in the scratchpad flight the pilot and, if necessary, carry out the simulator - FSTD
  • complexity of the variant of the aircraft on which the flight training and flight examination will be provided on
  • the time elapsed - time since the  single-engine piston - SEP(land) class rating is expired

The duration of the flight training prescribed by flight school required to achieve the required level of the aviation proficiency depends on how long is the EASA single engine piston - SEP(land) class rating expired.

Duration of the renewal flight training should be the longer, the more time has elapsed since the SEP(land) class rating is expired:

In some cases, if the single engine piston - SEP(land) class rating is expired for a short period of time (less than 3 months) the EASA flight school - approved training organization - ATO might decide not to asses the pilot with the renewal flight training.

When estabilishing the renewal flight training, the EASA flight school considers the following attributes:

  • class rating expired less than three months: no need for renewal flight training and the EASA flight school provide candidate with confirmation. The candidate can proceed with the renewal EASA license proficiency check (LPC) with EASA flight examiner
  • class rating expired more than 3 months but less than one year: at least two training sessions will be required by the EASA flight school to be prepared for the renewal license proficiency check (LPC)
  • class rating expired more than one year but less than three years: at least three training sessions will be required by the flight school to be prepared for the renewal license proficiency check (LPC)
  • class rating expired for more than three years: the applicant should have completed flight training again in the scope and duration, which is required for the first issue of the EASA SEP(land) class rating

The flight school - approved training organization - ATO shall develop an individual flight training program for the applicant based on the scope of flight training required for the initial issue of the SEP(land) class rating. Flight training will focus on aspects that flight school - approved training organization - ATO considers appropriate for the candidate.

After successful completion of the prescribed renewal flight training, the flight school - ATO shall issue a certificate of completion of the flight training.

Upon satisfactory completion of renewal flight training, the applicant is recommended for the renewal EASA license proficiency check (LPC) with an flight examiner.

After passing the renewal EASA license proficiency check (LPC), the single engine piston - SEP(land) class rating is renewed and endorsed by the flight examiner for a further 24 months (2 years).

We are providing the renewal flight training for single-engine piston aeroplanes - SEP(land) on the aeroplane variants which are considered to be a single engine piston (land) aeroplanes - SEP(land) and holds the EASA type certificate (EASA TCDS).
