CAP403 Flying Displays Edition 18

Following earlier consultation the CAA have now published a new edition of CAP403 Flying Displays and Special Events. This focuses on organising and obtaining permissions for flying displays, including the roles and responsibilities of Flying Display Directors.

To participate in a flying display, display pilots are required to obtain a Display Authorisation (DA). Details on obtaining a DA will be found in CAP1724 Display Standards Document which is also being reviewed.

With the ongoing COVID restrictions, the FDD Initial Accreditation course scheduled for 23- 24 March 2021 at the Defence Academy Shrivenham has been cancelled. The course will be rescheduled for later this year – further details will be promulgated on the FDD Training website.
