SEP Revalidation / Renewal

Course AIM

To provide the candidate with the required knowledge and skill to pass the Licence Proficiency Check.


FCL.740(b)(1) determines that if a class rating has lapsed the applicant shall take refresher training to reach the proficiency necessary to safely operate the relevant class of aircraft. The amount of refresher training needed should be determined on a case-by-case basis by the ATO, taking into account the following factors:

  1. The experience of the applicant. This will be determined by the evaluation of the pilot’s log book.
  2. The complexity of the aircraft.
  3. The amount of time elapsed since the expiry of the validity period of the rating. The amount of training needed to reach the desired level of proficiency should increase with the time lapsed.
  4. Once the needs of the applicant have been established a training programme should be developed based on the initial training for the issue of the class rating and focus on aspects where the applicant has shown greatest need.
  5. On completion of the training the applicant shall pass a proficiency check in accordance with Appendix 9.
