We believe it's important to undergo these sessions to ensure we continue to deliver training to the highest and safest standard and maintain continuity across our course provision.

It is also beneficial for our BDMs and geospatial experts to be hands-on with the latest technology to further establish us as subject matter and hardware experts, facilitating informed consultancy, advice, and proof of concept.

CAA website upgrade

by Jack Sharp -

The CAA  have been working to improve the way we publish Civil Aviation Publications (CAPs) and other documents on our website.

The new system will be going live on Thursday 22 February, making it easier to find specific titles or related information.

This means that the website search will soon include titles that only used to be available in a separate publications section. As well as being able to filter your main site search by publications, you’ll also be able to choose from an updated list of publication categories and series. Direct links to CAPs that include a CAP reference number in the URL (caa.co.uk/CAPXXXX) will continue to work.

There will be a short time on Thursday morning when the site search will be affected as the upgrade is completed.
