CAA Inspectors in the Flight Deck

Background Information

SAAPA is being put under pressure to allow some local CAA inspectors to operate South African Airways aircraft, both domestically and internationally and SAAPA would like to find out if this is the norm for other Star Alliance / International airlines.  

The rationale for CAA inspectors operating the aircraft is that it will give the inspectors a deeper insight into our operation and it will make the various CAA audits simpler.
