The Agency today published the Comment Response Document (CRD) which contains replies to comments by stakeholders, together with the revised text for Part-FCL and related Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC) and Guidance Material (GM). The Notice of Proposed Amendment NPA 2008-17 (b) detailing proposals for Flight Crew Licensing was open for public consultation between June 2008 and February 2009.
"We are convinced that solutions were found that are proportionate and focused on safety", said the Agency’s Rulemaking Director, Jules Kneepkens. "We have gone a long way to meet the different concerns of pilots, industry and the Member States".
Some of the main changes include:
Light Aircraft Pilot Licence:
Instructors for pilot training outside EU Member States:
The Agency will take these reactions into consideration when developing its Opinion on pilot licensing, which is expected to be published and submitted to the Commission during summer 2010.
