During this past week, the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association of Australia (AOPA Australia) has received numerous requests from flight training school business members seeking clarification with respect to the Coronavirus COVID-19 restrictions.
AOPA Australia has today received advice from Senator Susan McDonald, on behalf of the Deputy Prime Minister, confirming that there are no specific restrictions or prohibitions placed on the operation of flight training schools, but notes that the COVID-19 situation in Australia remains fluid and the situation may change.
Flight training schools are reminded of the need for personal protective equipment and are urged to maintain strict transmission reduction measures at all times.
Flight training schools are also reminded of the need to remain up-to-date with their respective State Government and work place health and safety requirements.
Flight training schools seeking further information are invited to contact AOPA Australia CEO Benjamin Morgan – firstname.lastname@example.org
