Personnel Licensing


The Civil Aviation Safety Authority is responsible for the issue of Air Traffic Services, Flight Crew and Maintenance Engineer personnel licences in Papua New Guinea. This includes ensuring that the requirements of ICAO Annex 1, Civil Aviation Act 2000 and Civil Aviation Rules and Regulations are met.

In addition to issuance and records keeping, the personnel licensing department also validates foreign licenses, facilitates transfer of licenses to ICAO member states and supports CASA audit teams. Basic objectives of the personnel licensing department include:

  • that appropriate training for the performance of specific activities in connection with aircraft operation is assured; and
  • that States are satisfied as to the ability and qualification of the holders of licences issued by ICAO contracting States.

The Personnel Licensing process involves both examination and testing to confirm satisfactory knowledge and skill as well as relevant medical reports.
