The holder of an FI(R) Rating may give flight instruction to students training for a PPL, although there are certain restrictions regarding the authorisation of solo flight and cross country flying. These restrictions are removed when the full Flight Instructor's rating is gained.
The FI (R) course is designed to train a pilot to be an Instructor capable of teaching a person to qualify for issue of a Private Pilot's Licence.
EASA-FCL 915 FI and 930 FI state pre-entry requirements to commence an approved course of training for the issue of an EASA-FCL FI (R) rating. Applicants shall hold a valid UK or EASA-FCL aeroplane pilot's licence which includes a valid single engine piston (land) class or single engine type or TMG rating and:

Any such requirement is unlikely to exceed the previous LASORS requirement of five hours flying and eight hours ground instruction.
