Designated Area for the Carriage of Documents – Part -NCO and Part -SPO.
The CAA have determined that the London and Scottish Flight Information Regions (FIR) are the designated areas where certain documents may be retained at the aerodrome or operating site.
For Pilots of EASA aircraft who are required to comply with Part-NCO or Part-SPO (applicable in the UK from 21 April 2017) certain documents, manuals and information must be carried on each flight. Information Notice IN-2016-093 sets out which documents must be carried on each flight and those which may be left at the aerodrome or operating site when the aircraft is operating solely within the London and Scottish Flight Information Regions (FIR).
The designated area will be published in the UK Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP) at which point IN-2016/093 will be withdrawn.
