Open - Consultation in progress
The consultation proposes that the medical requirement for UK private pilot licence and national private pilot licence holders is to hold a current DVLA Group 1 Ordinary Driving Licence (ODL). Existing medical options (for example a UK declaration with GP counter signature) will remain available.
During the CAA’s strategic review of Offshore Helicopter Operations (CAP 1145), an action was raised notifying of the CAA’s intention to assume responsibility for the certification of UK helidecks. This consultation is being undertaken as a result of that action.
We are consulting on draft guidance to advise stakeholders how we will interpret, monitor and enforce the requirements in the Airport Charges Regulations 2011. The Regulations set a common framework for airports with over 5 million annual passengers to consult in a transparent manner with airlines when setting airport charges. The Regulations also require airports to set non-discriminatory charges and to fairly allocate scarce capacity.
