The renewal procedure of the EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) has to be done in case, when the EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) is expired (out of date).

The renewal procedure for EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) has to be done by the cooperation with the 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 EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) renewal procedure is prescribed by the AMC1 FCL.740(b)(1) to the Part FCL which states, that the ATO (approved training organization) will establish the renewal flight training based on the following criteria:

  • previous experience of the applicant;
  • 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  EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) 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 instrument rating – IR SE(A) expired.

Duration of the renewal flight training should be the longer, the more time has elapsed since the EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) is expired.

In some cases, if the EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) is expired for a short period of time (less than 3 months) the ATO might decide not to asses the pilot with the renewal flight training.

The 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 EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A). Flight training will focus on aspects that ATO considers appropriate for the candidate.

After successful completion of the prescribed renewal flight training, the 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 instrument rating examiner – IRE(A).

After passing the renewal EASA license proficiency check (LPC), the EASA instrument rating – IR SE(A) is renewed and endorsed by the flight examiner for a further 12 months (1 year).

Aircraft used in PAN AVIA ATO for renewal flight trainingandthe renewal EASA license proficiency check (LPC) is Cessna-172.
