Australia is to follow next. Now considering also a more pragmatic FAA approach, where is EASA standing? isn’t it time for Europe to wake up and allow competency based testing to end once for all this farcical discrimination?
It's good to see that NZ & Australia have decided to lead the way with this, a OCVA makes sense. As an engineer this is similar to what I have to do every year, we call it a trade test but it's basically the same thing.
No doubt the UK Campaign Against Aviation will follow suit in about 20 years time !
