HC Deb 28 June 1967 vol 749 c97W
69. Mr. Dobson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the average delay a trained ab initio commercial airline pilot experiences before he takes his flying examination; and what is the reason for the delays.

Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu

Flight Examiners of the Board of Trade attend the flying training schools at planned intervals when courses of students are ready for test. In the case of the first student to be tested there is no delay but the last of the group may have to wait up to ten working days.
