Re: Getting Your PPL in CH? [Private Pilots License]

Hi All,

A quick update to yesterday's post... there were two options of getting the Swiss PPL.
1. Convert the license
2. Get a new Swiss license

I got an answer today: for option 1 you need to have an ICAO license (e.g UK, USA, Australia would be recognised as such). You need to be "current" (flown recently, up-to-date medical etc.). Then you can sit the theory exams, show that you are language proficient (this might mean German, French or Italian) - then you get a Swiss license.

If you are not current (as is my case, I have not flown in the last year and I do not have an up-to-date medical) you are left with eithr going home and become current or doing a new license (minimum 35h with instructor + theory +++).
