  • Hour Building in EASA vs G Registered Aircraft

    Posted by Elliot Emery on August 1, 2022 at 1:57 pm

    Not sure if anyone would know this but if I intend to get an EASA flight crew licence does the hour building section before commencing my ATPL/CPL flight training need to be done in an EASA aircraft or is it acceptable to be done in a G registered aircraft providing I then do my CPL in an EASA registered aircraft. Thanks for the help.

    If you have an EASA issued PPL it would have to be an EASA registered aircraft. I believe up until a month or 2 ago, you could fly uk aircraft on EASA but not the other way round. But I’m fairly certain that’s now ended

      Hi Stefan, I have a CAA FCL PPL and I am currently hour building on a G-registered aircraft. But ultimately I would like an EASA ATPL just wondering if I’d needs to convert my CAA PPL to an EASA one and then hour build on an EASA aircraft or if acceptable to hour build on a G-registered aircraft before then doing the remainder of my training on EASA aircraft.

        In that case, you’ll be fine doing your hour building on a G reg aircraft. As far as I’m aware, it shouldn’t make any difference. It’s the same as back before Brexit when people would go and hour-build over in the US.

        As long as you take the EASA ATPL theory exams, and EASA CPL/IR, you shouldn’t have an issue
