ICAO Circular 68-AN/O 1 -- -- - -- PRIVILEGES GRANTED TO FOREIGN PRIVATE PILOTS AND TO FOREIGN OWNERS OF PRIVATE AIRCRAFT FOREWORD In February 1947, the use and registration of aircraft by non-nationals was discussed at an Airworthiness Division of ICAO. Some of the legal aspects of this matter were also studied by the Secretariat and brought to the Air Transport Committee of ICAO at the end of 1949. No definitive action was suggested nor was any taken. In August 1952, a study was made of the problems affecting those private pilots away from home who wished to use their licences abroad the use by such pilots of radiotele- phony when flying abroad and the question of the private ownership of aircraft by alien residents. A letter was then sent by the President of the Council to Representatives of States on the Council of ICAO asking for information on these three points and in 19 53 a short memorandum No. 102 was issued analyzing the information received. This was followed by a revised memorandum No. 114 at the end of 1954. Memorandum No. 114, as in the case of the previous memorandum, was sent to Council Representatives only and it gave details on the status of privileges granted to alien private pilots and to alien owners of private aircraft, These details also showed the extent to which various States were prepared to allow alien private pilots to use the aircraft radio-telephone. Altogether the information included the replies received on these matters from the twenty-one States then forming the Council. The FCdCration ACronautique Internationale FAI was kept informed. In 1961, the PEL/MED Division made a recommendation as follows "Recommendation No, 8/2 - FLIGHT INFORMATION DATA FOR THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF PRIVATE FLYING, AND THE WIDER RECOGNITION OF THE TECHNICAL EQUIVALENCE OF LICENCES That since private pilots are travelling to foreign countries in large numbers and desiring to rent aircraft to fly for pleasure or private business and it being desirable to encourage them to do so and for them to obtain authorization to pilot aircraft in those countries where aircraft may be obtained for this purpose, the present practices of States regarding the procedures applied to permit such activities by foreign private pilots be obtained by the Organization and disseminated in a suitable form to all States so as to give the necessary guidance and assistance both to pilots and to States. " This Recommendation of the PEL/MED Meeting arose out of an "exchange of views on the international application of licences with particular reference to the inter-State acceptance of their technical value". The Meeting wished to encourage the most liberal practices possible, and hoped that a stage would eventually be reached where compre- hensive technical re-examination of a pilot already holding a licence would not be required when he went to another country and wanted to fly in that country.
