PORT ISSUES

The private pilots’ licence at Novorossiysk has been withdrawn

Further to our latest article regarding this issue in Weekly NEWS No. 13 dated 30 March 2001, the Ministry of Transport has refused to prolong the licence to the pilots at Novorossiysk, the Novo Maritime Pilots.  Hence, as from 1 May 2001 the state employed pilots has a monopoly at Novorossiysk.

However, the Russian Maritime Pilots’ Association has brought the withdrawal of the licence in to the Civil Court, and they are optimistic that they will have the licence at Novorossiysk reinstalled.
