ATR Obtains First EASA Part FCL Certification
ATR’s training center obtained the first FR.ATO.0001 certification, to meet the new EASA's “Part FCL” standards regarding pilots’ licenses.
The new regulation requires the integration of a new safety management system for pilot training, along with the revision of training manuals to comply with the new European standards.
“This first certification in France will no doubt have a very positive effect on the other organizations, with the aim of ensuring full compliance between now and end of April 2013, the deadline for making the transition to this new regulation,” said Florence Rousse, civil aviation safety director at ATR.
