Course: Nominated Person, Flight Operations

If you have been nominated to hold responsibility for flight operations in a commercial air transport operator then you will need to demonstrate to the ‘Competent Authority’ that you have the necessary qualifications and experience. The Competent Authority will ask for a resume and may conduct an interview. You will need to show that you understand the regulations in that interview but, more importantly, you will need to be able to refer to the regulations in your daily work.

Training Objective

After attending this course you will understand the regulatory requirements for flight operations in a commercial air transport operator and will be able to use the Regulations to find the information you need in your daily work.
