The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) released on Thursday the licenses of the second batch of cabin crew in accordance with Republic Act 9497 and the Philippine Civil Aviation Regulations (PCAR).
The 23, who were all from flag-carrier Philippine Airlines, were issued their licenses and even welcomed at the CAAP office by Director General William Hotchkiss 3rd and Deputy Director General John Andrews, who handed them their licenses in a ceremony on Thursday afternoon.
Memorandum Circular 30-13 series of 2013, dated June 17, and signed and approved by Hotchkiss, requires the crew of airlines to obtain their licenses from the agency to conform to the PCAR.
The memorandum covers all current crew members who have completed their annual recurrent courses from January to June 2013 to accomplish the CAAP Flight Standards Inspectorate Service (FSIS) Form 542 together with the supporting documents. The crew members must personally submit the documents to the CAAP for license processing.
Validity period of the license is three years and will remain valid as long as the licensee holder maintains the required competence, has a satisfactory report of medical fitness, and a holder of current Class 2 medical certificate.
