Have your say on changes for flight instructors

Date published: 17 August 2022


We have made an advance copy of a 'Grade 1 training endorsement holders' instrument available for your review before we issue the instrument in late September.

Two pilots under the wing of a small aircraft, reaching up to touch it and facing each other.

The instrument aims to:

  • Encourage upskilling and retention of flight instructors
  • Improve availability of flight instructors
  • Better use and enhance the competencies already set for these instructors
  • Introduce a more proportionate approach so more people can assess and grant authorisations, reducing reliance on flight examiners.

This is your chance to let us know if there’s something you think we’ve missed.

Flight instructors with a grade 1 training endorsement will have an expanded scope of training they can perform in addition to the supervision privileges they have currently. They will be able to train and authorise other instructors who are qualifying for more training endorsements.
