Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions on delivering training
The implementation of Government-directed COVID-19 restrictions are impacting the ability of deliver training and education to the Regulated Community (RC). As such, circumstances necessitate postponement of activity and consideration of alternative approaches to regulatory compliance in the relevant areas. Please read Regulatory Notice MAA/RN/2020/04 for more details.
The MAA air safety training (AST) team deliver, oversee and facilitate access to first class air safety training for UK military, civil servants, contracted civilians and foreign military students at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom and other locations.
The delivery and management of a coherent and comprehensive training portfolio for the defence aviation environment assists with the continual improvement of military air safety and enhances appropriate cultural change. We work with specialists from across defence aviation and external subject matter experts, such as Baines Simmons and the CAA, to ensure air safety training is relevant, appropriate and consistent with JSP822 in the current operating environment.
The MAA AST team comprises the Centre of Air Safety Training (CoAST), Trenchard Building, Defence Academy, Shrivenham, and colleagues based at Abbey Wood North, Juniper Building.
The below STEP suite of courses replaces the DAEMS (Defence aviation error management system) contract from April 2018 onwards. In addition to the standard course dates delivered at the Defence Academy, Shrivenham, additional courses are run across the UK on other dates. Please contact your STEP group point of contact for details of these courses and how to apply as the application process differs from the Shrivenham deliveries.
