EFTS Graduates are given credits towards the flying training requirements for a PPL(A):
As an EFTS graduate you need a couple of dual refresher trips, then top up your solo FW hrs to 10 hrs total, which will include a solo 150nm long nav with two away landings and then pass a Skills Test with our examiner. You’ll also need to do the 9 ground exams; they are quite straight forward multiple choice question papers; you can do them in 3 sittings of 3 exams. You also get an exemption from the RT Practical Test because of your military experience.
 Regarding EFTS logged flight times in your logbook. The CAA use block to block (brakes on/off) times. You cannot add taxy time to the military flight times, so the 10 hour solo FW requirement is a mix of the two.
 ATPL(H)/CPL(H) holders need only do the 5 specific FW ground exams.
