Basel-Mulhouse airport driving authorisation training

The new EASA regulations that came into force on 1 July 2016 set out new requirements in respect of driving authorisation in the reserved area of the airport.

In order to drive a motor vehicle in the reserved area, the following are required:
  • an airport badge with the corresponding security areas
  • a valid driving licence (appropriate for the vehicle category)
Important: the vehicle must have a badge for the authorised area (application to be made to the badges department of the airport).

Applications for authorisation for the apron and manoeuvring area require Ramp Safety training. The training relates to the safety of unaccompanied pedestrians in the movement area. The training may be given by companies that have been authorised by the airport management, or in the form of an e-learning course for a fee provided by Camas. Information and conditions of access may be requested via the link: ramp.safety@camasformation.fr.

The driving training programme includes three modules:
  • driving on the service road
  • driving on the apron
  • driving in the manoeuvring area
The chronological order of the trainings must be followed, and each traffic level must be validated before the next one. In the event of a refresher training, only the current authorisation level needs to be renewed.

The licences are valid for three years, and can be renewed.

The new EASA regulations strictly restrict access to the apron and manoeuvring area. Access is only granted if the person has
  • an aircraft operating task
  • a maintenance task
  • a safety task
The reason is to be specified in the driving authorisation application and will be approved by the aircraft operating manager and/or the EAP security manager.
