HC Deb 17 June 1966 vol 729 c357W
Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Defence in which of the subjects in the commercial pilots licence examination qualified pilots in the Fleet Air Arm and the Royal Air Force are not of the standard required for that examination.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Service pilots do not need to have a knowledge of Aviation Law; nor do they need to qualify in certain aspects of flight planning and radio communications, since these duties are carried out by Service navigators and signallers.
