PPL/IR - Europe - the voice of instrument private pilots across Europe

It can be difficult to keep up with many recent regulatory changes. This section summarises the key changes affecting private IR pilots in Europe.

PPL/IR is highly influential within EASA and national regulators. We have achieved highly visible milestones such as the Competency Based Instrument Rating, but much is also done behind the scenes to avoid or limit rule changes that adversely affect private aviation. Your continued membership of PPL/IR helps maintain these activities, conducted by hardworking and tireless expert volunteers.
