EASA SEP/MEP revalidations and renewals

EASA SEP revalidation:

IP Aviation is able to revalidate your EASA SEP by experience if you meet the following currency requirements:

  • 12 hours of flight time in single-engine (single-pilot) aeroplane within the 12 months preceding the rating’s expiry date, including the following:
    • 6 hours as pilot-in-command (PIC)
    • 12 take-offs and landings
    • a training flight of at least 1 hour (or a maximum of three totalling 1 hour) with a flight instructor or class rating instructor. If you have already completed a proficiency check or skill test in another type or class of aeroplane, you will not have to complete this training flight

After completing the 1 hour training flight your EASA SEP rating can be signed off directly on your license. This flight can be combined with any training sortie or even FAA flight review at no extra cost.

If your rating has expired it will need to be renewed and a proficiency check is required with an examiner. IP Aviation can also arrange this for you.

EASA MEP revalidation and renewals:


To revalidate the rating, you must pass a proficiency check in a multi-engine piston (single-pilot) aeroplane or in an FSTD representing such an aeroplane.

Proficiency check requirements

The proficiency check must take place within the 3 months preceding the rating’s expiry date and you must have completed the following during the validity period of the rating:

  • at least 10 route sectors as pilot of a single-pilot multi-engine aeroplane, or
  • at least 1 route sector as pilot of a single-pilot multi-engine aeroplane or FFS, flown with an examiner. This route sector may be flown during the proficiency check.


For renewals you must undergo training as required at an ATO and a proficiency check with an examiner.

IP Aviation is able to assist you in both cases according to your individual (training) requirements
