This Examiner / Instructor workshop is being held to support the Achievement Scheme and to help improve consistency.

The purpose of the workshop is to allow Examiners, Instructors and pilots the opportunity to gain experience, share information and discuss the requirements of the ‘A’ and ‘B’ tests in a relaxed and informal environment. Examiners will be asked to ‘score’ individuals whilst they perform mock tests, following which there will be the opportunity to compare notes and discuss the flights and the test format in general.

Free refreshments will be provided throughout the day, along with BBQ at lunchtime.
