The EU regulations introduce a Flight Test Rating. The privilege of this rating will be to allow the holder to fly non-certificated EASA aircraft. e.g. The pre-certification test, development and certification flying of a new aircraft type. When the rules are fully in place in April 2015 test pilots will have to hold this rating to carry out such flights. There will be a process by which existing test pilots may be granted the EASA Part-FCL rating.
