Re: Do you need a valid ppc to ferry aircraft?

You need to register to fly GPS approaches? Not sure what you are trying to say. If he flies privately in his PC12, and the GPS equipment in his PC12 is certified, why would he need to register anything to use the certified GPS installation? Yes, as it states in the AFM under GPS limitations...that...

Re: Do you need a valid ppc to ferry aircraft?

Which regulation would have been broken if someone flies a PC12 with just themselves on board without a PORD? As long as you didn't carry passengers or goods and flew on conventional navaids and didn't go into RVSM airspace you would be fine. If you need special authorizations (GPS, RVSM) then you ...

As stated above, it is 24 months or 5 years with integrated. In my case it was 4 years since I wrote and they issued the type rating on an IATRA so it all depends on who you get processing your license.

An iPad with Foreflight synthetic vision which I am sure the crew could afford would have saved the day before the EGPWS had to go into action. Unfortunate that airliners have less situational awareness than a Cirrus.
