in the case of an aircraft flying for the purpose of public transport or aerial work he is the holder of an appropriate licence granted or rendered valid under the law of the country in which the aircraft is registered ; and
[S 384/2000 wef 31/08/2000]
(b)
in the case of any other aircraft, he is the holder of an appropriate licence granted or rendered valid under the law of the country in which the aircraft is registered or under this Order, and the Minister does not in the particular case give a direction to the contrary.
(3)  For the purposes of this paragraph, a licence granted under the law of a Contracting State purporting to authorise the holder thereof to act as a member of the flight crew of an aircraft, not being a licence purporting to authorise him to act as a student pilot only, shall unless the Minister in the particular case gives a direction to the contrary be deemed to be a licence rendered valid under this Order but shall not entitle the holder —

(ii)
the person acting as the pilot of the aircraft without being the holder of an appropriate licence shall not be the pilot-in-command of the aircraft unless within the period of 6 months immediately preceding he was serving as a qualified pilot of aircraft in the Armed Forces, and his physical condition has not, so far as he is aware, so deteriorated during that period as to render him unfit for the licence for which he intends to qualify.
(5)  Notwithstanding sub-paragraph (1), a person may act as a member of the flight crew of a Singapore aircraft without being the holder of an appropriate licence if, in so doing, he is acting in the course of his duty as a member of the Armed Forces.

(b)
the holder of a licence granted or rendered valid under the law of a Contracting State other than Singapore, being a licence endorsed as aforesaid, shall not act as a member of the flight crew of any aircraft in Singapore except in accordance with permission granted by the Minister, whether or not the licence is or is deemed to be rendered valid under this Order.
