Type Rating Revalidation and Renewal
If you need a Type Rating Renewal or Revalidation on the Boeing 737 or Airbus A320 then Jet Flight Training can help you.
We have over 30 years training and examining experience behind us, and we specialise in helping pilots from all over the world with a dedicated service to revalidate or renew existing or lapsed type ratings. We can carry out any refresher training you might need which can be combined with an LPC detail.
A Type Rating Revalidation or Renewal requires a Licence Proficiency Check (LPC).
If you hold both an EASA licence and a UK licence, one check can be used for both licences.
Type Rating Revalidation
The EASA and UK Type Rating Revalidation terms are covered in FCL740A.
A revalidation is where an LPC is carried out before the expiry date of your current rating.
You can take an LPC within the 3 months prior to the expiry date of your current rating and the new expiry date will be an extension of 12 months to your current expiry.
The LPC consists of a pre flight briefing and typically 2 hrs Full Flight Simulator (FFS) time per pilot. We provide a pilot monitoring free of cost if you are alone.
Please contact us to make an enquiry.
Type Rating Renewal
The EASA and UK Type Rating Renewal terms are covered in FCL.740A and also AMC1 740(b) and AMC1 740A (b)(1)(ii)
If you take an LPC after your rating has expired it is known as a renewal.
The common question asked with renewals is "Do I need any Refresher Training"
The simple answer to this question is the ATO decides if you need any refresher training in order to pass an LPC and have a level of proficiency to safely operate the aircraft. We are an EASA and UK approved ATO and we are required to make an assessment based on your experience to determine if refresher training is required. It may be none is required.
We ask clients to complete a flying hours experience form and based on the information you provide we can
determine fairly accurately if or what refresher training will be required.
Alternatively we can conduct a simulator assessment to see whether you can undertake a proficiency check to renew the rating immediately or whether you will need to take refresher training first.

Proficiency check and Administration
Prior to your LPC we will notify your CAA that we will be undertaking an LPC for you. We will complete your authorities paperwork and after successful completion of the check our examiner will sign your licence on the ratings page with a new expiry date.
There are some authorities that do not allow us to sign a licence and in this case they will issue a new licence to you.
We will then forward a copy of all of the relevant paperwork to your CAA
and also copy to you to keep for your records.
