PPL (A) crediting if you hold a SPL including privileges to fly TMGs

PPL flying lesson

If you hold an SPL issued in accordance with Annex III (Part-SFCL) to Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1976, including privileges to fly TMGs you must complete the following:

1) At least 24 hours of flight time on TMGs after endorsement of the TMG privileges

2) At least 15 hours of flight instruction in aeroplanes in a training course at a DTO or at an ATO, including at least:

3) 10 hours of supervised solo flight time, including at least 5 hours of solo cross-country flight time with at least 1 cross country flight of at least 270 km (150 NM) that includes full stop landing at 2 aerodromes different from the departure aerodrome.

Skills Test

At the end of your training, you will need to take a skill test with an examiner in the relevant aircraft type to demonstrate that you can competently carry out the procedures and manoeuvres that you have been taught, while acting as pilot in command (PIC).

You must have had some flight instruction on the same aircraft type or class that you will be taking your skill test in. Generally you will take the test in the same aircraft in which you have been trained.

In practice, you will not need to worry about making any bookings for a skill test yourself as this is something that we at Flight Training UK will do for you when you are ready.

What next

Once you have your part-FCL PPL (A) TMG, you'll be able to add a SEP class rating to your licence then you'll be able to complete the Tail Wheel differences training course and finally, add a Sailplane Towing Rating to your Pilot's Licence
