What does a 'Head of Delivery' actually do? Here a little report of today:

Monday morning. I sit down with Julie, our administrator to discuss a number of training enquiries from future pilots. Julie handles all our incoming training requests. We also discuss how we can better use our flight school software to increase administrative efficiency.

At 11 I have a fifteen minute phone call (in Dutch!) with a Fleet Manager of a large aviation company in Papua New Guinea.

They want to send a PNG National down for a Pilot Course. We agree he will come for a visit this Thursday to look at our facilities. We'll discuss what the MAF Training Centre can offer. MAF is very keen to start training local pilots. This is the end goal of missions. Ensuring the local church and the local people can take over the work.

In the afternoon I write a short proposal with the three training options for CPL (Commercial Pilots License) that I want the flight school to offer in 2019.

I also checked the aircraft hours on all the flight school aircraft to see if the maintenance bookings for the aircraft are still ok. An aircraft only has a window of 10 hours in which a check can be carried out. If the hours exceed the 10 hour window, the aircraft is grounded. We want to plan so that that doesn't happen of course as it means no training can take place on that aircraft!

I also spoke with an Instructor and the Chief Flight Instructor to plan a Night and Instrument Flying test for Thursday. Let's hope the weather cooporates.
