In line with the recent government announcement of a National lockdown, along with the restrictions in Scotland, the UKCAA senior management team have concluded that all exams scheduled to be sat must be cancelled from next week until the end of February 2021. This applies to both flight crew and aircraft maintenance engineers.
Candidates with bookings will receive a notification when their exam is cancelled, and the fees will be returned to the portal account which made the booking.
Current bookings in place for March will remain but no further bookings will be permitted at this time due to the uncertainty, this also includes dates for booking after March which are not open yet. This will be reviewed in February and a decision will be made in line with government guidelines as the situation develops.
The written examinations in 'Navigation', 'Meteorology', ‘Air Law and Licensing Policy’ and 'FISO Procedures’ last 30 minutes each. The pass mark is 75%.
Further information about the examinations and the syllabus is available in:
Applications to undertake the written examinations should be made on form
The closing date for applications is 15 clear working days before the date of the examination.
Examinations are held at Gatwick - CAA, Aviation House, RH6 0YR.
If you are sitting all four examination papers, you will be presented with one paper at a time.
All candidates are required to be at the venue and available to be called through for the examination session, no later than 20 minutes prior to the start time.
The charges for FISO examinations can be found in the
CAA’s Scheme of Charges, ORS5 (Personnel Licensing).
Please note - The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), as the Competent Authority for Examinations is in the process of introducing electronic examinations (e-Exams) to replace the paper-based system.
This transition has begun with Flight Crew Professional examinations for Aeroplane & Helicopter ATPL, CPL and IR.
