Anyone wishing to act as a Flying Display Director (FDD) in the UK must be appropriately accredited by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and/or the Military Aviation Authority (MAA). A Display Authorisation (DA) holder may also be accredited by the CAA to act as an Airborne Flying Display Director (AFDD). DA holders are advised that from the 2021 Display Season, a CAA AFDD accreditation will be required by those pilots wishing to carry out the role of AFDD.
To obtain FDD or AFDD accreditation, applicants are required to demonstrate a number of competences and attend an Accreditation Course. Flying Displays are categorised in accordance with the requirements contained in CAP 403/RA2335. FDDs must be accredited to at least the same tier as that of the event.
