Course: Overview of the Aircrew Regulation

Commission Regulation (EU) 1178/2011 known as ‘the Aircrew Regulation’ governs all aspects of the training and licensing of pilots, cabin crew and aircraft technical crew within the 32 EASA member states. This includes the ‘organisational requirements’ which explain the management system requirements for training organisations, aeromedical centres and flight simulation training device operators. ‘Part-FCL’ is one part of the regulation that describes the pre-requisites, privileges and conditions of all types of pilot licenses and ratings.
