Flight Operations

The Flight Operation Inspectorate is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs) for all air transport operators. These operators include commercial aviation service providers, general aviation, aerial work air operators (e.g. agricultural) and sporting & recreational aviation. All air operators are assessed using a standard five-phase certification process which determines the capacity and readiness of the proposed air operator to conduct business within the confines of the aviation requirements. Continuous surveillance of approved air operators is conducted on a regular basis.

Flight operations main duties include:

  • Issuance of Air Operator Certificates(AOC)for local operations
  • Issuance of Air Operator Permits (FOP) for foreign Airlines
  • Oversight of the activities of AOC and FOP holders.
  • Issuance of Approvals for the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air
  • Develop and implement Fatigue Risk Managements Systems
  • Development of guidance material for the aviation industry.
