• Pre-requisites

    Organisations must have OJT privilege within their approved exposition, Section 3.15 (145.A.70a). If not, the organisation should apply for the OJT privilege by submitting an application form, SRG1013B to their allocated surveyor, their exposition detailing their control procedure for such privilege.

    Organisations with their principal place of business located outside the UK, including those based in the Channel Islands, are eligible to apply to the UK CAA directly for approval of their OJT procedures.

    How much does it cost?

    See the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges.

    There will be a charge for each application, which can include multiple aircraft types within one application.

    In the event of a discrepancy between the information here and the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Emissions), the Scheme of Charges takes precedence.

    How long will it take for my application to be processed?

    If the application team receive your application and all elements are present are correct, an email will be sent to your organisation within 15 working days.

    How long is it valid for?

    Once granted, a Part 145 OJT approval is valid for 12 months (one year) from date of approval. After this date, if an organisation wishes to carry out additional OJT, then it will have to re-apply.

    This approval is raised by the Air Worthiness team, and will be subject to CAA oversight by the surveyor, following the organisation’s agreed audit programme.

(Aircraft ratings should be listed as per EASA Part-66 Appendix 1 listing.At this time the Part 66 listing does not include Sailplanes, Powered Sailplanes or Balloons. In this case use the aircraft type designation specified on the Type Certificate Data Sheet)

    • Once the application is received and the fee processed, the application will be allocated to a surveyor for them to complete a desktop audit/review. The Surveyor will determine if an on-site audit is required.
