§ Mr. McCrindle
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, in granting route licences for long haul flights, the Civil Aviation Authority imposes any conditions regarding the use of two-man crews; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Michael Spicer
The crew composition is determined by the CAA certification standards of the aircraft and by flight time limitations, not by the conditions of route licences.
Both the CAA and the flight time limitations board are considering whether special rules are required for long-range two crew operations.
