Flying Display Authorisation Standards Document: Edition 2 consultation

Closed 12 Jan 2020

Opened 16 Dec 2019


Flying Display Standards Document (CAP1724) was first published earlier this year alongside Flying Displays and Special Events (CAP403) to ensure that the display pilot evaluation process is standardised as much as possible.

CAP1724 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 evaluation.

It contains regulatory guidance material to enable those people to perform their tasks, discharge their responsibilities and maintain compliance with applicable aviation law.

Following the 2019 display season, we are now consulting on amendment for a new edition.

The consultation closes on 12 January 2020.
