Change taking place at the Singapore Aviation Academy

After a long time - if I am not totally wrong, 18 years - an icon in aviation steps down as a procedure design instructor at the Singapore Aviation Academy. The one and only Ralph Sexton is currently teaching his last course there. I remember him saying "this is my last one" for some years, now he is serious about it. I am sure Ralph is going to miss his Black Pepper Crab at the Eastcoast Seafood Center :-)
The new instructor as from next year on will be Rey Dove, who participated in the ICAO Instrument Flight Procedures Panel for the first time at the September meeting some weeks ago in Montreal. I am sure Rey will be a great replacement, he has a similar relaxed style as Ralph. However, Ralph's teaching experience is of course hard to match and he leaves big shoes to fill.

Advanced PBN course

Dear IFP people,

Note that there will be a substantial amendment to PANS-OPS vol. II applicable from November this year. The Baro-VNAV chapter is totally revised, criteria for RF leg protection also in the departure phase where the area splays will be provided amongst other.
Please note that most probably the last advanced PBN course covering the new material for this year will be
May 19 - 30 for fixed wing and
June 2 - 6 for Helicopter PinS

The next one after that will only be in 2015 as it looks like.
