    Hi Matt just wondering about the new directive from DGCA can i have my NZ CPL revalidated after one year lets say for 2-3years or would i be out of luck? A company like Susi Air have to comply with it considering 208’s have less than 30 seats. Thanks regards Rob

      Hi Rob,

      Not sure quite what you’re asking there. The new regs basically mean that in order to fly in Indonesia now, you must keep your foreign (NZ in your case) license and medial valid. Each year when you do your PPC the DGCA will issue you with paperwork which validates your foreign license and allows you to fly in Indonesia.

      As I started working here before these regs, I’m allowed to continue to fly on my Indonesian DGCA issued license.

      Cheers
