The Chicago Convention and Annex 1 define that holders of a licence such as pilots have to carry a valid document to prove their continuous proficiency. Today many licence holders are unable to keep their licences valid in accordance with the requirements in place due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Therefore Contracting States issue exemptions to support stakeholders.
This Webinar will explain how ICAO supports the States with their alleviation measures and provide recommendations how the individuals can prepare for the return to normal operations.
