Rights and Responsibilities of a Flight Captain.

Know about laws and regulations on board.

We have managed to win a Senior Manager in the aviation industry who is also an attorney with a special focus on aviation law. With his experience in theory and practice, we developed a training that focuses on the legal requirements of an aircraft captain.

During this training course you will learn about the basic legal structure of a law system, especially Airlaw regulations (EU-OPS, EASA-OPS and - optional - the German LuftBO), the legal authority & responsibility of the pilot in command (PIC) on board of an aircraft, his or her nautical authority & responsibility and about liability issues for the pilot him- or herself as well as for the Organisation he or she is flying for. Thus, at the end of the course you will be familiar with the applicable regulations, how Airlines implement those regulations in order to be compliant and to fulfill their duty to maintain safety as well as the PIC’s position within Airline Management Systems. This training will be highly interactive. You discuss case studies and work on other exercises. The participants will also share some of their flying experiences and we will be able to discuss the practical issues with a legal perspective.
