Automatic validation of flight crew licences and multi-crew pilot licence take-off and landing

At a meeting of the EASA Committee held on 20-21 February, a positive vote was made on a Draft Commission Regulation based on EASA Opinions 03/2017 and 16/2016 amending Commission Regulation (EU) 1178/2011 as regards automatic validation of flight crew licences and multi-crew pilot licence take-off and landing.

Introduction of the automatic validation of flight crew licences amendment will allow recognition of the European Flight Crew Licensing Regulations at an ICAO level and will resolve some SAFA findings issues for EU operators. The multi-crew pilot licence amendment will allow for a reduction in the number of take-off and landings needed to qualify for a multi-crew licence, subject to satisfactory performance.
