We would like to inform you about precaution measures to prevent and mitigate the spread of new coronavirus disease COVID-19.
The government of the Czech Republic declared the state of emergency in its entire territory for 30 days with effect from March 12th, 2020 from 2 pm. However, new mitigations have been announced today, so please check back to the website of the Ministry of Interior (https://www.mvcr.cz/mvcren/) and Ministry of Foreign Affairs (https://www.mzv.cz/en) regularly.
In order to comply with precaution measures you are obliged to comply with following orders and restrictions:
Effective immediately, no flights outside the FIR of the Czech Republic are permitted with aircraft operated by Flying Academy. This applies to all types of flights – dual, PIC, skill tests.
Due to rapid changes in travel policy for Czech citizens and foreign nationals from EU Schengen countries and also third countries (outside of the Schengen zone), if you are present within the territory of the Czech Republic, you cannot travel outside of its territory. International passenger travel has been restricted in order to minimize the movement of people and therefore the spread of the disease.
If you are planning to come to the Czech Republic to initiate or continue with your training, make sure to contact your Flight Training Consultant at Flying Academy prior to your departure. There are rapid changes and daily updates on travel policies in the Czech republic and all around the EU depending on daily situation.
