What is the function of the Flight Operations Inspectorate?

The Flight Operations Inspectorate is responsible for the approval and ongoing surveillance of the operational safety standards of Maltese airlines.

The Authority for Transport in Malta is the State organisation responsible for discharging the International obligations relating to the monitoring of Air Operator Certificate holders under the terms of Article 37 of the Convention on International Civil Aviation (Chicago 1944) and in particular to the Standards and Recommended Practices contained in Annex 6 to the Convention.

The ICAO obligations are legally enforced in Malta by means of the Civil Aviation (Air Operator Certificate) Act 1970 and the Air Navigation Order 1990.

The Flight Operations Inspectorate is empowered, through the Director General of Civil Aviation, to carry out all the necessary functions pertaining to the issue and renewal of Air Operator Certificates, the monitoring of holders of Air Operator Certificates, the approval of persons to certify pilot licensing tests and the approval of aircraft training devices.
