Flying Instructors & Examiners A place for instructors to communicate with one another because some of them get a bit tired of the attitude that instructing is the lowest form of aviation, as seems to prevail on some of the other forums!

So after filling in the necessary DTO paperwork, will the CAA also issue me with a set of exam papers?, used to have a set with my BX rating, not so with an FE rating, they belong to the ATO ,perhaps i need a GR rating? more £££

I understand they've 60 days to accept a Declaration, which doesn't leave much time if they take the 60 days and then reject it - potentially we could be temporarily out of busines in April if there are snags.
You can commence operation the minute you make your declaration. They have 10 working days to acknowledge receipt. They can make observations but there is no process for rejecting it so there is no 60 days.

If you hold a FE Certificate they do not charge extra for a GR Certificate.

More questions.

Section 11.AERODROME PARTICULARS

"b) If aerodrome is unlicensed, confirmation that safety assessment required in Article 209, ANO 2016 has been conducted"

Now having read Article 209 of the ANO I have to say I can’t see where it says that a safety assessment has to be conducted. What it actually says is “satisfied on reasonable grounds that the aerodrome has adequate facilities for the safe conduct of such flights.”

Would anyone be kind enough to point me in the right direction of what I need to do to meet this requirement?

State that the aerodrome is operated in accordance with the requirements and recomendations of CAP793.

thatís your safety assessment. Typically itís easier if the arrodrome has once been licenced but I work through the same headings as for AIP - AD entries looking at runway size , obstacles in the approach, general state of the manoeuvring area and obstacles off the taxiways etc, signage, lighting, noise abatement and escape options in the climb out.

Bottom line is would you let your Ďmost preciousí be trained there?
