This non-accredited course has been designed as an abridged version of our full Aerodrome Reporting Officer Course. It is suitable for those tasked with inspecting and reporting on uncertified aerodromes, where the full Aerodrome Reporting Officer Skill Set is not required. Operators of uncertified aerodromes will find the course material of benefit to personnel at all levels, including maintaining situational awareness in an aviation environment, inspecting and reporting on aerodrome serviceabilty and identifying obstacles.
An uncertified aerodrome is not regulated and is not required to meet the same standards that apply to a Certified facility. However, many of these smaller aerodromes are operated by local government or boutique mining companies, who must still demonstrate that safety and due diligence have been addressed. There are also flight operations rules in place to ensure that airlines and charter companies only use aerodromes that are fit for purpose, which may include having a suitable person available on the ground to report on the aerodrome’s condition. This course will help to fulfil these requirements.
