Introduction

These are aircraft operating on temporary Permits to Fly awaiting certification activity from the manufacturer before a full Type Certificate is issued. It is accepted that some of these aircraft have been operating on a temporary Permit to Fly for some years and that the Type Certification may or may not happen sometime in the future. Some aircraft are operating in the UK under an Article 24 exemption displaying non-ICAO compliant marks.  

Regulatory Framework

Aircraft operating on a Part-21 Permit to Fly issued under Part 21.A.701 a)13 (for example) will remain on a Part-21 Permit to Fly. The Part 21 Permit to Fly will be issued by the CAA or a Part-CAO Organisation with Permit to Fly issue privileges in accordance with Part-CAO, CAO.A.095 (d).

Flight conditions issued by EASA will be accepted for a period of up to two years after 31st December 2020 providing they remain valid. Continuing Airworthiness Arrangements detailed in the Flight Conditions / Aircraft data sheets shall continue to be applicable.

Any change that invalidates the flight conditions or associated substantiation shall be approved by the CAA. New flight conditions will be issued by the CAA (CAA Form 18b)

Note:   The CAA will be responsible for the issue of flight conditions related to the safety of the design and flight conditions not related to the safety of the design.

Action required at the end of the UK EU exit transition period

If you are operating the aircraft on a temporary Permit to Fly in the UK under an Article 24 exemption, you must check with the authority issuing the PtF (e.g. LBA in Germany) whether operation is still permitted after the end of the UK EU exit transition period (i.e. after 31 December 2020).

If your aircraft is registered in the UK (with a certificate of registration), no action is required until the Permit to Fly expires or the Flight Conditions become invalid.

Part-21Types operating on a Permit to Fly (Non Expiring) where the continuing airworthiness is administered by the LAA 

Examples: BOLKOW BO 208A2 JUNIOR, BOLKOW BO 208A2 JUNIOR (limited by Serial Number), FOURNIER RF3, RF4D, RF5 and RF5B (limited by Serial Number), GARDAN GY80-180

 

Introduction

During the development of the EASA Part-21 rules, several aircraft already operating in the UK under the PFA [now the Light Aircraft Association (LAA) system were 'grandfathered' into the new system and issued with non-expiring Permit to Fly (EASA Form 20b) to facilitate their operation. As part of this process the responsibility of the oversight of these aircraft was transferred to the LAA and this was accepted by EASA. Certain other Part-21 aircraft have been transferred more recently to a permit to Fly validated through the LAA because they became 'Orphaned Types' which EASA considered eligible for either a Permit to Fly or a Restricted CofA at the owners's choice.

Regulatory Framework

After 31 December 2020, these aircraft will remain on a Part-21 Permit to Fly and the continuing airworthiness oversight will remain with the LAA.

Continued Airworthiness information (e.g. Airworthiness Directives) issued by the State of Design will continue to be applicable.

Action required at the end of the UK EU exit transition period

No action is required by the owner. The LAA will revise its guidance information.
