CAP 1724 Flying Display Standards

Closed 12 Feb 2021

Opened 15 Jan 2021


CAP 1724 was first published in February 2019 alongside CAP403 Flying Displays and Special Events, the aim being to ensure that the process of display pilot evaluation is standardised as far as is practicable.

It provides a single point of access to guidance for Display Authorised pilots (DAs) and Display Authorisation Evaluators (DAEs) in areas such as preparation, standardisation and evaluations; and contains regulatory guidance material to enable those people to perform their tasks, discharge their responsibilities and maintain compliance with applicable aviation law. We are now consulting on an amendment for a new edition.
