Non-french examiners need to be registered on the list if they wish to conduct skills tests (ATPL, CPL, IR, CR, TR, PPL, LAPL or BPP) , an initial instructor assesment of competences or an assesment of competences for an extension of instructor privileges. To do so, please read and follow the instructions as mentionned below.

January 2016 :
Attention to foreign ATOs and Examiners

We kindly remind you that candidates for ATPL, CPL, PPL, LAPL, BPP and IR skill-tests must complete the DGAC registration procedure for ATPL, CPL, PPL, LAPL, BPP and/or IR skill-test before the examlners notify the test.
This registration procedure is independent from the DGAC requirements for the examiner.
Once the candidate is registered for the skill-test and has received his/her acknowledgement of receipt from the DGAC examinations office, the test can be conducted (provided the examiner is registered on the list, has notified the test and is allowed to conduct the test after the notification)
