In April 2012, the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (LBA) included Jan Veen as (H) SEN in the list of examiners with special recognition. He is one of few flight instructors who may issue certificates for an extension of the LBA examiner-recognition.
If an examiner wants to extend his recognition, he must pass a practical examination or competence test. This test is supervised by a (H) SEN – an examiner, who was recognized for this purpose especially.
This special award is issued by the LBA for only a period of 3 years.
