Course: Overview of the Air Ops Regulation

Commission Regulation (EU) 965/2012 known as ‘the Aircrew Regulation’ governs most types of aircraft operations within the 32 EASA member states, including airlines, charter operators, no-commercial and specialised operators (‘aerial work’). As well as operational rules that regulate how aircraft must be operated the regulation also stipulates ‘organisational requirements’ for aircraft operators and national aviation authorities.
