The Home of European GA IFR Pilots
PPL/IR Europe is open to any pilot who is interested in operating light aircraft under IFR in Europe. We now have over 500 members, most of whom are private pilots with current Instrument Ratings, but some members are still working on, or considering, this rating, and a number of commercial and airline pilots are also members.
Many of our members are based in the UK but we have members in Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and USA. Members typically operate under either EASA or FAA licences with several maintaining both.
