EASA SPO (Specialized Operations) Training Course

Introduction

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has published Commission Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 laying down technical requirements and administrative procedures related to air operations.

These new EU Regulations have an impact on how National Aviation Authorities (NAA) and Operators work and demonstrate their compliance with regulations.

The course will introduce the new regulations for specialised operations. The course is ideal for any organisation that wants its management personnel to understand the implication of EASA SPO for itself and for the NAA overseeing it.

 

Note: This course is also ideally suited to be run at the client’s location with the majority of the management personnel attending so they all receive the same information.
