CIVIL AVIATION AUTHORITY OF FIJI
NOTICE TO ALL AVIATION STAKEHOLDERS
Please note that the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji is in the process of publishing an Aeroplane Upset Prevention and Recovery Training (UPRT) Standards Document (SD).
Between 2001 and 2011, aeroplane accidents resulting from a loss of control in flight (LOC-I) event were the leading cause of fatalities in commercial aviation. LOC-I accidents often have catastrophic results with very few, if any, survivors.
Reducing the number of LOC-I accidents is an ICAO priority, and ICAO has developed harmonized training requirements for flight crews that address and mitigate LOC-I events. Supported by ICATEE and the FAA ARC, ICAO has introduced improvements to existing Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) and corresponding guidance material. Both on-aeroplane training at the commercial pilot and multi-crew pilot level and training in a flight simulation training device at the airline transport pilot and type rating level are now promulgated in Annexes 1 — Personnel Licensing and 6 — Operation of Aircraft, Part I — International Commercial Air Transport — Aeroplanes, as well as in the Procedures for Air Navigation Services — Training (PANS-TRG, Doc 9868), with an applicability date of 13 November 2014. This draft Standards Document provides guidance to support these new provisions and is only applicable to the training of aeroplane pilots.
Hence, you are now invited to participate in this industry consultation process for the next 4 weeks. All submissions to the Authority shall be made on Form QA109 addressed to the MLE on email to Manager.Legal&Enforcement@caaf.org.fj and shall reach the CAAF no later than 31st of August 2022.
Please refer to the link below for the draft SD for UPRT.
