Leading Edge Flight Training, by choice, is an Approved Training Organisation (ATO).
As such, we receive certification from the Civil Aviation Authority. This includes submitting Operations Manuals, Training Manuals, and Safety Management Systems to their inspector for formal inspection and approval. We are also audited by them on a regular basis.
This requires a more strict management structure and additional resource and cost.
We took the decision based on the assurance of quality of our training and organisation with direct oversight of the regulator.
