Its a little known fact that Santa recently moved his AOC to Europe, registering his Sleigh on the U.K CAA ‘G’ register for the first time ever.
Whilst we know first hand AOC’s can be tricky, this move wasn’t just delayed by the AOC but also Santa’s FAA licence, as up until this year he usually flew under the FAA banner, holding a FAA ATP.
BCFT was approached by Santa as he knew we specialised in licence conversions and the experts within the Blackadder team set about assisting him where ever they could.
Our fantastic CTKI and his Ground Instrcutors ensured Santa had no problems passing the 14 EASA ATPL exams and our legendary Blackadder Flight Instructors made sure he was up to speed with EASA flying practices in no time.
To celebrate the transition, Santa popped into BCFT this afternoon, posing with our BE76 Duchess November November, the aircraft he flew during his CAA Flight Test and handed our small gifts for Staff and Students.
Santa now holder of an EASA ATPL and Reindeer Sleigh Rating and is ready for this years festivities. Not forgetting our friends at Simtech Flight Simulation who assisted with the MCC/JOC to.
