Me me!!
Actually I've still 240 hours to get, plus exam passes, tests and licences before I can even think of applying for that.

What's the difference between restricted and unrestricted? Number of hours? Exams?

A newly qualified instructor is restricted until they have 100 hours of instruction under their belt and have sent students on 25 solo sortees. Whilst achieving this they can only instruct under the stewardship of an unrestricted instructor. Then, once the CAA have relieved them of some more cash, they can be unrestricted and take responsibility for some other restricted instructors.
Hope this helps.

Yes Jen, you could do that. It's a variety 25 solo exercises as well, so you couldn't send the same student round the circuit 25 times with a shut down in between each one!! It took me over 6 months to accumulate the solo exercises whereas I met the 100 hours part in about 2 months!

Sadly (in my opinion anyway) the 25 solos has been reworded by the CAA or JAA (can't remember) to be 25 solo EXERCISES, some instructors are using this to send about 5 or 6 solo flights and become unrestricted by virtue of the multitude of EXERCISES contained in just one flight.

I think its wrong as it erodes the experience levels in the FI base by allowing the inexperienced to supervise the even less experienced., but then I am a miserable old(ish) git.

Gary,

I'm sure there was a TRAINING COMM last year that specified that people had been taking advantage and that no more than about 2 exercises should be recorded per flight. I also heard a few who had tried to get away with very few actual flights and loads of exercises had been sent home without their unrestricted licence and told to go and do some more.

When I got my restriction removed I was under the impression it was flights not exercises (which it actually wasn't) so I waltzed in there with 25 flights and about 40 exercises! So I actually did more than I had to, but I had got the 100 hours instruction months before.

WG is correct, Training Com. said 2-3 exercises per flight is reasonable. John.

Hi, still working my way through my ATPL's at the moment with a view to instructing,

So in theory instead of 25 solo flights I could have my restriction removed with only 9 - 12 solo flights if 2-3 exercises per flight are allowed.

Is that right , that seems like 'not much'

5 down 8 to go !

Seems like bugger all to me.

Lets call it 9 flights under supervision, and then you can supervise others and send first solos, with no great experience of doing so yourself.

One of the big differences between the UK/ JAA and the FAA is the split between the theoretical and practical side of flying, seems we are just lowering the standard of our practical flying through some recent requirements that have been adopted.
