Personnel Licensing Manual - Issue 3

This manual prescribes the Maldives rules relating to the licensing of Flight Crew, Flight Dispatchers, Aircraft Engineers, and Air Traffic Controllers. The standards prescribed in ICAO Annex 1 to the Chicago Convention are used throughout. It is written under the general authority of division 2 of the Civil Aviation Regulations, and its provisions must be complied with.

The aviation activity in the Maldives is too small to support or justify a stand-alone licensing system, and the CAD relies on the licensing systems of larger states for much of the work involved. The CAD provides a quality system for auditing qualifications obtained in other states, and issues validations and licences based upon them. It also adds ratings to licences once they have been issued.
