Overseas Territories Aviation Circulars are issued to provide advice, guidance and information on standards, practices and procedures necessary to support Overseas Territory Aviation Requirements. They are not in themselves law but may amplify a provision of the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order or provide practical guidance on meeting a requirement contained in the Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements.


An operator is required to establish and maintain a ground and flight training programme, approved by the OTAA. The training programme shall include training in knowledge and skills related to human performance.

This OTAC gives guidance for implementing, reinforcing, and assessing crew resource management (CRM) training for flight crew members and other personnel essential to flight safety.  CRM training should be designed to become an integral part of training and operations and this information is not sufficient alone to comply with all the relevant standards and requirements for CRM.


This Circular relates to OTAR Parts 121 and 135. OTAR Part 125 operators, in consultation with the OTAA, may wish to apply guidance in this OTAC that relates to their type of operation.


First issue.


Enquiries regarding the content of this Circular should be addressed to Air Safety Support International or to the appropriate Overseas Territory Aviation Authority.
