Conversions

Are you a military pilot? Then you will find information here about converting your military license into a full EASA license.

Convert military license to an EU license.

Did you get a license when you were in military service? Then you can convert your license into an EU license according to European regulations. The exemptions from Part FCL requirements are granted according to an exemption report prepared by the Member State in consultation with the Agency (Art. 10 of EU 1178/2011). There are 3 exemption reports for the categories of fighter, transport and helicopter pilots prepared by CLSK (Ministry of Defence) in consultation with the ILT and EASA. See also the 3 RNLAF Credit Reports at the bottom of the page.

Each category has its own training path and credits are defined for each category for issuing an EU (part-FCL) licence. Part of this is a 'bridge course' (theory). The candidate must follow this bridge course at an Approved Training Organization (ATO). The bridge course must be approved by the ILT. Variants of the Military Bridgecourse delivered by Orbit Groundschool are all recognized and lead to the preparation for the national exam at the CBR. The applications for a conversion to (part-FCL) license must be submitted to the Kiwa Register.

Course structure and build-up

Course structure and build-up

The theory training consists of a 'distance learning' phase and a training of one day in Arnhem. This training, also known as 'revision & brushup', has been made mandatory by the Human Environment and Transport Inspectorate (ILT).

Self study

The big advantage of this 'distance learning' training is that you can organize your own pace and study time. The home study work program is structured schematically in weeks and daily tasks, whereby with approximately fifteen study hours per week, a turnaround time of about three months is quite feasible for this single module, excluding exams.

A military aviator completes the military bridging course in about three months. Of course you can determine your study load. The lead time depends on your own time effort.

In the self-study, you are guided through all courses and subjects via a simple work program per module. Study progress is checked by means of compulsory 'progress' tests. The 'progress' tests are administered in a varying number of chapters and can be made at home on the computer. Then you can send the test online to Orbit Groundschool for checking with one push of a button.
