Problem

The European Parliament has adopted new rules (EASA EC 216/2008; 2009 and 2013 amendments) that no longer allow the use of FAA privileges within European countries, unless the operator is located outside of Europe.

The Instrument Rating (IR) will only be valid until April 8th 2016.  This is very bad news, because it will be impossible to fly under IFR our “N” aircrafts in all European countries and because many pilots have to pass Type Ratings (QT) on their airplanes.

The legal dispositions can be read here (english and french): law.

There are two solutions (here).

YOU ALL HAVE TO DO SOMETHING NOW, IF YOU WANT TO BE AUTHORIZED TO FLY NEXT YEAR !
