  • Following up on this question about pilots letting passengers fly the plane, suppose you’re in a Cessna 172 with passengers and you have your PPL. If you want to let a friend try flying the plane, you might climb to 3,000' AGL and get clear of other traffic. You’d probably get to $V_A$ or a little less and trim for level flight. Then, you might let them try some shallow turns.

  • I own a PPL(A) license following JAR-FCL. Recently, this license has been exchanged for a European EASA license. My training was on a motor glider (TMG), I do not have ratings for SEP, but TMG and Ultralight only. In Germany I will have to fly a one hour test on an SEP to get the rating (plus about 5h for training). What do I have to do in the US to get the rating?
