13ICAO SARPs Annex 6, 9.4.4 - Pilot Proficiency Checks An operator shall ensure that piloting technique and the ability to execute emergency procedures is checked to demonstrate competencyIf under instrument flight rules the pilot’s competence to comply with such rules is demonstratedEither a check pilot of the operator or to a representative of the State of the OperatorPerformed twice within any period of one year..
14ICAO Guidance DOC 8335 - Pilot Proficiency Checks when properly controlled by the CAA, the designation of qualified operator personnel to assist in some inspection functions, such as periodic pilot proficiency checks, route checks, etc., can be acceptableit must be stressed that the designated operator personnel, when performing their duties, must be kept under the supervisory and technical control of the CAA.
15ICAO Guidance DOC 8335 - Pilot Proficiency Checks Proficiency checks are carried out in accordance with the standards and frequency prescribed in the regulationsThe CAA inspector should possess the appropriate licence and be currently qualified in the specific type of aircraft to be used for the checkAlternatively, the CAA inspector may choose to observe or monitor such checks conducted by an appropriately designated check pilot
16ICAO Guidance DOC 8335 - Pilot Proficiency Checks The CAA inspector should observe or monitor a sufficient number of checks conducted by such personnel each year in order to ensure positive CAA quality control of check proceduresThe pilot proficiency check should be conducted in such a manner that the pilot demonstrates knowledge, skill and judgment relative to:the aircraft, its systems and components;pilot performance in accordance with the procedures and limitations contained in the manufacturer's AFM, AOM, Operations Manual, etc.

47New Altimeter Error Policy "An aircraft altimeter which has thecurrent altimeter setting applied to thesubscale should not have an error of morethan ±50ft when compared on the groundagainst a known aerodrome/runway elevation.If the error is more than ±50 ft the accuracy ofthe altimeter is questionable and the problemshould be investigated." (CAP.GEN)
48Fly Runway Heading When instructed to fly runway heading or when flying a SID for which no specificheading is published, pilots are expected to:• Fly runway heading• Do not apply drift correction• FMS fly track

64Light Settings and RVR RVR readouts compensate for the setting of the runway edge lights. At setting 5 theRVR will give the highest reading. This willaffect the RVR readout even if the runwaylights are off.ATC should advise pilots when the runwaylight intensity is at setting 4 or 5.
