NPA 2016-16

Regular update of Part-FCL - Regular update of Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011 regarding pilot training and licensing and the related oversight

The objective of this Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) is to address a non-controversial safety and regulatory coordination issue linked with pilot training and licencing requirements of Annex I (Part-FCL), Annex III (Conditions for the acceptance of licences issued by or on behalf of third countries), Annex VI (Part-ARA) and Annex VII (Part-ORA) to Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011 (the Aircrew Regulation).

This NPA proposes to clarify already existing rule text in order to make the regulatory framework more precise and effective, as well as to correct the current inconsistencies and editorial errors.

The proposed changes are expected to ensure clarity of the regulatory framework, promote a competitive environment, provide for alignment with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) provisions, and maintain the current level of safety through harmonisation of the Aircrew Regulation requirements.
