The Future of ICAO PANS-TRG

Over a decade ago, ICAO introduced the first competency-based licence: the MPL. A few years later, evidence-based training was introduced. There have been a lot of lessons learned since the introduction of these provisions. With the approval of Amendment 5 to the PANS-TRG, ICAO will embark on a substantive work programme that will revisit, update and enhance all provisions related to competencies. This programme will impact aeroplane pilots, aircraft maintenance personnel, air traffic controllers, air traffic safety electronics personnel, flight dispatchers and cabin crew. This presentation will describe the nature of this amendment and how ICAO intends to carry out the follow-on work.
