The British Air Line Pilots Association's objections are to requirements contained in draft proposals that were issued for consultation by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The Civil Aviation Authority responded to the consultation identifying those parts of the proposal we supported and those areas where we had some concerns. Details of the response can be found on the CAA website: www.caa. co.uk.

EASA is reviewing its proposals in the light of the responses to consultation and will issue revised proposals in due course. It is too early in the rule-making process to say what will be in EASA's final proposal.
