Today we are pleased to send you good news from the European Commission’s EASA Committee.


During its session from 8 to 9 October the Committee adopted a favourable opinion on an amendment to the so-called Aircrew Regulation (1178/2011/EC) and its annexes. Before the changes can be applied they will have to undergo a period or scrutiny in the European Parliament and the Council, however, further changes are extremely unlikely.


Following a constructive dialogue of EAS with the Commission and Member States, based on the principles of the General Aviation Safety Strategy, the Committee’s decision brings about great improvements for our sector.

  • The requirement for Registered Facilities (RF) to become Approved Training Organisations (ATO) has been postponed by three years from April 2015 to April 2018. While this is a success in itself a key objective of the delay is to consider alternative options to ATOs for private pilot, i.e. training outside of an ATO.
  • Of great importance to those involved in competitions and flying displays the rules have been changed to allow holders of third country licenses to fly in such events.
  • As regards sailplane pilots and balloonists the legislator has increased the age limit for single pilot commercial flights from 65 to 70 years of age.
  • Rationalisation of the revalidation requirements for balloon group ratings to permit revalidation on the largest balloon the pilot intends to fly will be introduced.
  • PPL(A) training will also be allowed using Touring Motor Gliders (TMG), which is already allowed for LAPL(A) training.
  • Any powered sailplane may be designated as a TMG by the design company.
  • Revalidation Examiners will be allowed to sign SEP and MEP ratings by experience.
  • The new Credits for Instructor Ratings allow crediting hours flown on similar aircraft also for instructor ratings.
  • Revalidation requirements including seaplanes will be improved.
