Regulation Compliance

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) rule change affecting non-commercial complex (NCC) aircraft came into force in August 2016. This was a long planned regulatory change that altered the operation of many business aircraft in Europe by laying down a formal safety framework that corporate aircraft and those aircraft operated for individuals, including owner-flown aircraft, must adhere to.

The regulations specifically target owners and operators of privately operated business aircraft whose principle place of business or residence is in one of the EASA Member States, whether the aircraft is registered in Europe or a ‘third’ country.

Our Part-NCC solution will not only ensure your aircraft is fully compliant with the regulation, but we are able to assume overall responsibility for the accountability, safety and compliance of the aircraft and its operation, whilst continuing to maintain the flexibility expected when operating privately.

WE HAVE YOU COVERED.

EASA AIR OPERATIONS REGULATIONS

EASA Air Operations Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 Part-NCC applies to any non-commercial operator flying a ‘complex, motor-powered aircraft’ registered in an EASA country and having principle place of business in an EASA country, or registered in a country other than an EASA country but having their principle place of business in an EASA country. In part, the rule refers to aircraft with take-off weight exceeding 5,700 kilos or equipped with turbojet or more than one turboprop engine.
Affected operators will need to be familiar with the EASA Basic Regulation and the Air Operators Regulations, as well as have the following:

  • A management system proportionate to the operation, which includes a Safety Management System.
  • An operational manual that correctly reflects operations.
  • A crew training program proportionate to the operation.
  • An approved minimum equipment list and the aircraft enrolled into an organisation managing its continued airworthiness.
  • A declaration made to the competent National Aviation Authority affirming compliance to the regulation and that they assume all responsibilities for the operation.
Complex motor powered aircraft

AN AEROPLANE;

  • With a maximum certified take off mass exceeding 5700kg; or
  • Certificated for a maximum passenger seating configuration of more than 19; or
  • Certificated for operation with a minimum crew of two pilots; or
  • Equipped with a turbojet engine(s); or
  • Equipped with more than one turboprop engine and exceeding 5700kg
The operator

An operator is identified within the regulations as “any legal or natural person, operating or proposing to operate one or more aircraft”.

More simply, an ‘operator’ is classed as any person or organisation that looks after a private aircraft on behalf of an owner and are responsible for the day to day administration and operation, which could be the pilot, registered owner, beneficial owner, user/lessee or advisor.

The person or organisation deemed to be the operator will be liable for all regulatory responsibility.

A HELICOPTER;

  • certificated for a maximum take-off mass exceeding 3175kg; or
  • Certificated for a maximum passenger seating configuration of more than nine; or
  • Certificated for operation with a minimum crew of two pilots; or
  • Certificated for operation with a minimum of two pilots
Principle place of business

The principle place of business is typically the place where the operations department is located, such as the operational control office or it may be the residence of the operator.

Normally this is also the home base of the aircraft concerned.
