Notice of Proposed Further Amendments to the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order 2013 (“AN(OT)O”)
This Notice is published by way of supplement to the NPA/Consultation published in December 2017 setting out proposed amendments to the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order 2013; and follows further extensive consultations with the Overseas Territories Aviation Authorities and industries. It also takes account of various amendments to the Annexes to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (the Chicago Convention) - adopted by the Council to the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) – with which the United Kingdom (UK) as a Contracting State is obliged to comply.
These further amendments to the AN(OT)O therefore include, for example, additional provisions to support recent changes to the ICAO Annexes and to enable internationally accepted best practice to have legal status within the Overseas Territories. These additional amendments to the draft Amendment Order (AO) are complementary to the document which was submitted to the UK Government in 2018 and contain a number of provisions including, for example:
- Fatigue Risk Management Schemes for Air Traffic Control services (ATC),
- To cover designated postal operators’ training in transport of dangerous goods,
- Data monitoring and safety management,
- Commercial Air Transport operations for Turbine-Engine aircraft at night or in Instrument Meteorological Conditions (IMC), and
- Flight under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) at night.
Due to the demands on Parliamentary time and Legislative processes, caused by the demands of Brexit and, more recent, COVID pandemic, this Notice is subject to consultation for a period of 30 days.
Any comments or objections to the proposed further amendments must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 March 2021.
