Latest Article 16 BMFA / CAA Agreement – Issued 21/12/2022

 

The CAA have issued the latest BMFA Article 16 agreement on 21/12/2022 (link below).

BMFA  Article 16 Agreement – Issued 21/12/2022

This replaces the current agreement which was due to expire on 31/12/2022. The new one expires on 31/12/2023.

There are a few amendments to references to supporting legislation documents and the below 2 additions at points 4.8 and 4.9.

These 2 sections give authority to the BMFA to supply the information to the CAA for the CAA to then issue both CAA Operator Numbers & Flyer ID Numbers, if the below conditions are met.

In relation to the Flyer ID you would have to hold the BMFA RCC (40 question online test). You can not obtain a Flyer ID using an achievement scheme test passed prior to 31/12/2020.

For now you can still use an achievement scheme test passed prior to 31/12/2020 as proof of competency under this latest Article 16 agreement. You have to be a BMFA member and acknowledge that you have read and understood Article 16 (section 3.12 in the Article 16 document).
