The SEP(L) class rating is valid for 24 months. The rating can be revalidated while it is still valid, or renewed after expiry. The requirements stipulated in Part-FCL for revalidation and renewal are different.
Revalidating the SEP(L) rating by experience includes a flight (or flights) with a suitably qualified instructor during the second 12 months of the rating validity. Rule FCL.740.A (b) does not prescribe any programme or exercises to be carried out during such a flight, and there is no pass or fail outcome. Pilots who need to fulfil the flight requirement can get in touch and arrange a 1-hour flight with our instructor.
In order to renew an expired SEP(L) class rating, a refresher training is required, followed by a proficiency check with an examiner. Details of the refresher training are described in rule FCL.740 (b). Please come to us, bring your licence and logbook, and we will do our best to help, designing and delivering the training, and then directing you to an examiner.
