FAQ n.136179

I am a holder of an examiner certificate issued in accordance with Annex I (Part-FCL) of Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011. Am I allowed to conduct skill tests, proficiency checks or assessments of competences to Russian license holders or to Russian nationals, who hold either a Part-FCL or other third country license (i.e. for the purpose of obtaining an EU Part-FCL licence, rating or certificate)?

Answer

Training, testing and checking could be allowed if done for the purpose of later operating a non-Russian aircraft i.e. if the student or candidate is e.g. destined to fly as an employee on an EU airline. If the intention is to fly in Russia or Russian registered aircraft, then such tests would be support to the use of banned aircraft or operators and hence prohibited. For private pilots (who presumably would be flying themselves and are Russian citizens) such examinations or checks are not allowed. Furthermore, the skill tests, proficiency checks or assessments of competence cannot take place in Russia.
