Personnel Licensing


Anyone wanting to become an airman, whether for an aeroplane, helicopter, microlight, glider or hot-air balloon, has to complete a clearly defined training path. This includes theoretical lessons as well as practical training in the aircraft concerned. The training is completed with an examination.

The CAAK is responsible for issuance, renewal and revocation of licences for:

  • Flight crew (aircraft pilot licences and theoretical examinations, cabin crew, training organisations, language proficiency assessment bodies, approved FSTD training organisations, etc.);
  • Aircraft maintenance personnel (Part-66 licences and theoretical examinations, Part-147 organisations, etc.);
  • Air traffic controller licences and air traffic controller training organisations;
  • Flight dispatcher licences and Flight operations officers; and
  • Medical Certificates.

Licences are issued on the basis of completed training programmes which are conducted for each type of aviation personnel, following a thorough examination process. Once issued, a licence is to be renewed after a certain period of time defined by the relevant regulation. Detailed rules for this type of activity can be found separately for each type of aviation personnel in the specific regulations.
