Your pilot training organisation status as a Registered Training Facility (RTF) with the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is set to change after 8 April 2019. Please read this letter for more information.
All organisations who held a JAR-FCL Registered
Training Facility certificate must have transferred to a Declared Training
Organisation by 8 April 2019 if they wished to continue offering training for
EASA licences and ratings after that date. Any organisation who did not make
the transfer may no longer train towards EASA licences and ratings The
regulations governing Declared Training Organisations may be found in in the
Aircrew Regulation, Annex 8. The General Aviation Unit has also produced a
Guidance Document on the requirements, what courses a DTO may offer, how to
declare and what this means. This can be found here.
All organisations are reminded that, when submitting a declaration, they must identify an appropriately verified or approved Training Programme for each course to be offered. A list of programmes that have been verified or approved by the CAA and are commercially available can be found below. This list will be updated regularly as more programmes are submitted to us for verification/approval. Programmes submitted by individual organisations will not be included unless the CAA are advised by the applicant that they wish us to do so.
Details of how to submit a Training Programme for verification/approval can be found in CAP 1637, while the application form can be found here (SRG2144).
Information on the current fees for declaration and verification of training programmes can be found in the Scheme of Charges Personnel Licensing on page 17.
A list of organisations holding DTO status can be found below.
Full text of the European Commission Implementing Regulations, Acceptable
Means of Compliance and Guidance Material for DTOs can be found on the EU Journal
