LPC (Licence Proficiency Check)

As you know, every 12 months you need a LPC. These can be done at Rise at relatively short notice. Rather than leave it to the last minute you are permitted to do this check flight up to 90 days before the LPC ‘run out date’ written in the back of your licence. The 12 months still runs from the old date (e.g. next one due in 15 months). This allows you to do a R22 and R44 LPC on the same day.
