Air Crew Licensing CAR – FCL – 2 Days


The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) intends to issue regulation providing formal requirements, Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC), and Guidance Material (GM) relating to Flight Crew Licensing, Aviation Training Organisation approval and oversight.

The full regulation will have a phased implementation and will see full mandatory compliance by February 27th 2015.

The NPA was developed by the GCAA incorporating an identified need to update the existing GCAA Flight Crew Licensing regulations in CAR Part II and CAR Part IV in order to harmonise the current GCAA Safety Affairs regulatory suite, and inputs from a centralised Committee consisting of regulatory and industry experts.
The intent was to write a forward focused set of regulations that closely mirror the EASA Flight Crew Licensing regulations in order to meet GCAA strategic objectives and to ensure greater synergy with other Regulatory bodies for the betterment of the UAE Aviation Industry as a whole.
This 2 Day intensive training considers all the elements of the CAR FCL legislation.
