The AAME scientific meeting will take place on the weekend of Saturday 23rd March 2019. Following the success of the Friday evening pre-conference session this year, we plan to run an interactive session on Friday evening of 22nd March. The venue will in the North West, and will be announced in due course. Please put the date in your diary, as the meeting promises to be excellent.
We have had several enquiries regarding acceptable ATCO refresher training for retaining privileges relating to EU Class 3 medicals. The CAA have given the following guidance:
“Due to the implementation of the ATCO Regulations in December 2016 privileges relating to Class 3 medicals will only be revalidated if we have evidence that you have completed refresher training relating to the ATCO environment.
Please can you confirm within the last 3 years if you have completed training relating to ATCOs?
If you have not completed any ATCO refresher training within the last 3 years please contact an ATC facility and plan a visit day to see ATCOs in action, once you have completed this please provide the location, dates and times.”
NATS is unable to provide AME visit days, due to the large number of AMEs who would like to attend. The onus remains with the individual AME to arrange a visit to a local ATC facility.
If you attended the Friday evening session at the AAME Scientific Conference on 16th March 2018 (Dealing with the difficult pilot and ATCO), your attendance certificate will include ATCO specific CPD.
