Informaiton about becoming a Flight Engineer Type Rating Examiner
Please note that the CAA does not plan to adopt JAR-FCL 4 in the foreseeable future. However, the document will be used as the basis for training and testing flight engineers.
FETREs should have knowledge of the pilot examiner document, CAA Standards Document 24 - "Guidance to Examiners: Multi-Pilot Aeroplanes Type Rating Skill Tests and Proficiency Checks"
There is no formal requirement for a FETRE to be qualified as a Type Rating Instructor; however, the skills applicable to the role of a FETRE are analogous to the role of a pilot Type Rating Examiner.
EU-OPS Subpart N requirements for Crew Resource Management (CRM) training is applicable to all flight crew.
This is reflected in CAP 737 - "Crew Resource Management Training" and CAA Standards Document 29 - "Guidance Notes for Accreditation Standards for CRM Instructors and CRM Instructor Examiners" It is therefore applicable to flight engineers and pilots alike.
The authorisation of a FETRE is valid for a maximum period of three years. As part of the re-validation check, a CAA Training Inspector confirm the candidate’s continued ability to hold an instructor rating and will ascertain the candidate’s knowledge of the relevant legislation.
CAA Form SRG3102, together with the appropriate fee, should be sent to the Flight Operations Inspectorate (Training Standards). Details of costs can be found in the CAA Scheme of Charges - Personnel Licensing.
