Gyroplane licensing

Closed 9 Dec 2016

Opened 4 Nov 2016


This document for consultation is the latest revision of the CAA’s Standards Document for the licensing of Gyroplane pilots.

As well as having been thoroughly reviewed to modernise and update existing content, it now reflects the training requirements for the new CPL (Gyroplanes), night rating and associated requirements for instructors. Updates to reflect the new Air Navigation Order 2016 (which replaced the ANO 2009) have also been made.

We believe this standards document represents a comprehensive yet proportionate set of requirements and provides a sound basis for the continued application of high standards of training and testing for gyroplane pilots.

We seek the views of gyroplane pilots, instructors and other interested parties prior to formally publishing this document for use.
