Transfer to Declared Training Organisations – timetable announced

The transition timetable to allow existing private pilot Registered Training Facilities to transfer to the new Declared Training Organisation (DTO) category, which allows much simpler oversight, has been announced by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Subject to final approval by the European Commission, the process will run from 8 April 2018 to 8 April 2019 and is part of EASA’s GA roadmap to make regulation of the sector more proportionate.

Tony Rapson, Head of the CAA’s GA Unit, said: “We believe the move to Declared Training Organisations is a sensible and proportionate one. It means that we’ll have realistic levels of safety oversight while avoiding the need for many training schools to have to comply with the more complex and costly requirements of an Approved Training Organisation”.
