Explore the practicability of instituting check flights to supplement the audit process on approved operators.

The CAA can accept this recommendation only to the extent it does not cut across the operator's clear responsibility to train and supervise its own employees. Check flights of individual flight crew by the CAA would be an example of a very detailed sample of the effectiveness of an airline's training systems, and would be relatively infrequent, while surveillance of the airline's own checking of flight crew (including observation by the CAA of the airline's check flights) would be the more common level of audit.

The CAA accepts the value of check flights on this basis.
