DTOs get formal approval from European Commission

The UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said it had now been informed of the decision and would begin the process of informing all affected UK training facilities.

The decision will require all private pilot training schools currently categorised as Registered Training Facilities (RTFs) to convert to DTO status by 8 April 2019, if they want to continue offering training towards EASA licences.

RTF’s can begin the conversion process from 3 September 2018. The CAA will be publishing details of the process and the full DTO requirements on its website over the next two weeks.

DTOs will be subject to a much simpler oversight regime, compared to Approved Training Organisations, cutting down requirements for schools that only offer training for private flying qualifications. Schools will simply have to declare its activities meet the set standards in order to commence training, rather than having to obtain full regulatory approval.

The CAA will also be issuing updates on the DTO process to subscribers of its Skywise notification system in the coming weeks - http://skywise.caa.co.uk/
