  2. align the scheduled surveillance period of the Aviation Safety Surveillance Program to that of the validity period of the air operators certificate;
  3. reconsider the flight review requirements for Chief Pilots with the view of bringing them into line with the current situation for Chief Flying Instructors, as an additional method of surveillance;
  4. review the adequacy of the approval and assessment requirements for Chief Pilots who do not have a demonstrated history in flight operations with a commercial operator;
  5. review the current situation regarding Aeroplane Flight Reviews, to allow for appropriate notification to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority and recording of the results.'
