    Default B1 to B2 type differences course timing limitation

    I'm currently looking at a couple of EASA B1 to B2 type differences courses. It has been approx ten years since sitting the initial B1 courses and I have been actively certifying B1 & C on both types since. I hold B2 on another similar type which again I'm actively certifying on.

    I have heard that there maybe a limitation on the time elapsed from the initial type course to completing the differences course of four years. As I can't find anything in EASA does this ring true with anyone and if so could they point me in the right direction in the regulations?

    Thanks

    Its 3 years from the start of the course for the Initial Validity
    See Part 66 Appendix III 1 (a) (iv) and (b)(v)

    Differences are Para (c) (ii) & (iii) and not defined as its a case by case basis subject to the member state where the application is made.

    My only thought ....... if it was ages ago then you may need a tech refresher that the NAA have approved acceptable. There lies the landmine which could blow your legs off.

    Got told the same thing...
    Need to do an initial avionics plus practical or initial mech + differences + practical.
    And guess what they recommended doing the 3 course route.
    Another on of thier tricks appears to scheduling avionics initial theory courses without a practical course to follow.
    Joys of small aircraft with limited course providers. ��

    Thanks you for your replies. I'm going to have a go with the 'case by case basis' with the CAA, but aren't holding out much hope.
