NOTE – Bulletins issued prior to 2012 made no references to an Advanced Qualification Program (AQP), even though the intent of various amendments published since the inception of this bulletin board also applied to it. Therefore, any new bulletin published subsequent to Bulletin 02/11 will state if they apply to the ACP program, to an AQP, or to both.

Temporary Bulletins

Bulletins are issued from time to time to communicate policy and procedural changes that occur periodically and that need to be implemented in a timely manner. These bulletins are distributed by electronic means and may be printed on contrasting paper such as blue paper. They are to be inserted in the Bulletin section of TP 6533 – ACP Manual and/or TP 14672 – AQP Evaluator Manual as applicable, or copies kept with TP 14727 – PPC and Aircraft Type Rating Flight Test Guide (Aeroplane) and/or TP 14728 – PPC and Aircraft Type Rating Flight Test Guide (Helicopter) where necessary. Bulletins will remain in effect until cancelled or integrated into the applicable guidance document(s) at the subsequent amendment cycle.
