Clear Sky have been busy during the first part of the winter (just the way we like it!) We have completed a lot in the past few months from: fuel training to independent de-icing audits.
Congratulations to Darren & Justin for completing their DAQCP auditor training at Munich and check rides at Dublin, London Heathrow and London Gatwick, now airlines will be sending plenty of DAQCP / IFQP work their way, with the first being in Switzerland in a few weeks’ time for bmi regional. Darren has already completed independent fuel & de-icing audits at Manchester, East Midlands & Norwich.
Apprentice Daniel commenced work on the 30th September and has settled in well and busy assisting and completing his business NVQ modules as well as helping Amy with all aspects of the business (accounts, travel, training documents etc).
The introductory fuel training video has been completed and will be used in the training modules in the New Year and thank you TAG at Farnborough and AVP video productions.
Where have our auditors / trainers been?
We have been completing DAQCP audits and are well on our way to getting our 50% target by January, we have also visited: Dundee, Edinburgh, Norwich, Shetlands, Outer Hebrides, Manchester, Chester & Bristol.
De-icing training has been completed at Air Tanker at Brize Norton - this means that the RAF are able to respond to any calling worldwide with their support aircraft ( mid air refuelling A330 and logistics) all year round even in the winter.
Prestwick Airport have also received de-icing training so that if we do get a white winter all of the passengers will be able to safely get to their families and friends.
De-icing training has been completed at Tag Aviation at Farnborough for the GA jet traffic.
Eastern airways have received deicing training in the Shetlands. This is important to connect the islands to the mainland as the main gateway to the Shetlands is through its ports and airports and the de-icing training allows aviation operations to operate safely in the winter conditions.
