rubber created the topic: Positioning - CAO 48.1 Appendix 4

With reference to the answer given to Appendix 4 Research Questions, Q10:

Answer (b) "Any positioning flight, before or after a FDP, must be considered to be part of the FDP and the normal FDP limit that applies must be reduced by the duration of the positioning flight." (Appendix 4, para 7)
Bob Tait Appendix 4 Summary,
5. Positioning - If a pilot is required to undertake a positioning flight (that is as a passenger, not a FCM), the duration of the positioning flight is to be included in the FDP before or after the positioning flight.

However, para 7 only states that "On completion of assigned flight duties in an FDP (the relevant FDP), a FCM may position to a suitable location as required by the AOC holder", and

6.3(d) in the Definitions of CAO 48.1 says that,
"Positioning, if undertaken immediately after the person's flying duty and no other flying duty is to be conducted in the duty period - is not part of his or her FDP"

Q:Does positioning after flying duty count as part of the FDP?
