Short notice: Another ARINC 424 course this year

Due to popular demand, we scheduled another ARINC 424 database coding course this year. The dates are: December 10-14, the location is the DFS campus in Langen/Frankfurt Germany. Accomodation can be booked at the Steigenberger Hotel (walking distance from DFS) for around 90€-100€.
This course will be taught by Christian Freiesleben. Tuition fee is 1100€. Let me know soon if you wish to join, the course is almost full.

Last PANS-OPS course of the year about to start

There we go: On Monday, October 29, the last PANS-OPS course of the year will start at the ANI location in Fukuoka/Japan, where a full class i waiting to get trained in Flight Procedure Design. As always, I look forward to this and I am sure we will have a good time again.
For those looking for a PANS-OPS course in 2008, you'd better think about booking now, we seem to be looking at full classes again and I cannot accomodate another course.

Obstacle restriction and removal

See in the attached picture how we progress with the latest obstacle restriction and removal operation :-) Thanks to Jan Varga from ASAP s.r.o. for the picture. Another reason to add some margin for vegetation and unlisted obstacles. However, male giraffes grow to about 5.5m, so the chances that your tree allowance will cover it are relatively high...

Procedure Designer Vacancy in Brisbane

Hi All,

There seems to be an intersting job vacancy down in Brisbane for a private consultancy company. They are looking for a procedure designer to head up their procedure design team. As far as I understood, a candidate would have the possibility to establish structures and work processes, as the company only starts to be active in the procedure design field. Now, before everybody jumps, here are the catches:
An order from the Australian regulator CASA requires that a chief designer has the following pre-requisites:
1. A basic PANS-OPS training course with a CASA approved training provider (which I am not by the way. They ask for too much money to get the courses assessed). Currently, I know that Singapore Aviation Academy is on the list of approved institutions.

2. An advanced training course, as far as I know CASA, also at an approved institution.

3. A minimum of 2 years current procedure design experience.

However, if you cope with these requirements, or know somebody who does, please contact Tim Goodwin at Rehbein AOS:
