Airline cabin crew personnel now required to secure government licenses
The license will be valid for three years.
Darwin Amojelar of InterAksyon.com reports that the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) is now requiring cabin crew members to obtain licenses before they are allowed to work in airplanes.
According to the report, CAAP is mandating cabin crewmembers to get a license to conform to the Philippine Civil Aviation Regulations (PCAR) under Memorandum Circular No.30-13 series of 2013. Newly hired crew members must have completed an approved training course and competency in operations and emergency procedures under qualified airline operators before they can apply for a license. The license will be valid for three years "and as long as holders maintain the required competence, pass the medical fitness exam, and hold a Class 2 medical certificate."
