EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order further amends the Air Navigation Order 2009 (the “ANO 2009”).

Article 2 inserts two new articles into the ANO 2009. Article 246A confirms the ability of the Civil Aviation Authority (“CAA”) to grant exemptions in unforeseen urgent operational circumstances or where there are operational needs lasting up to two months. In the case of repetitive exemptions or exemptions which will exceed two months the CAA may only grant such exemptions with the consent of the Secretary of State. Article 246B allows the CAA to authorise pilots to fly aircraft within the United Kingdom in certain meteorological conditions before they have complied with all the requirements of an instrument rating.

These functions are to be exercised by the CAA, as regards Article 246A, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 216/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 February 2008 on common rules in the field of civil aviation and establishing a European Aviation Safety Agency, and repealing Council Directive 91/670/EEC, Regulation (EC) No. 1592/2002 and Directive 2004/36/EC.

As regards Article 246B, these functions will be exercised in accordance with Commission Regulation (EU) No. 1178/2011 of 3 November 2011 laying down technical requirements and administrative procedures related to civil aviation aircrew pursuant to Regulation (EC) No. 216/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council.
