As Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2018/1976 (SAO) defines in Article 3 - Air operations (2), operators of sailplanes shall engage in commercial operations only after having declared to the competent authority their capacity and means to discharge the responsibilities associated with the operation of the sailplane.

The point is, regulation and AMCs as they are written are almost impossible to meet, or, I'd rather think, made to protect the bosses of the avionic shops , so they, and only them, can have a licence, or the person they choose to grant one, for instance if they sell their business when they… Wed, 14 Feb 2024 14:41:56 +0100 Fabrice SEGURA 308219 on Wed, 14 Feb 2024 14:41:56 +0100 Javier Bozzino posted in General Aviation https://www.easa.europa.eu/community/post/1690 Dear colleagues, I share with you, in case it is of your interest, this year's edition of the "Vuelta Aerea a España".

In real life this can become quite complicated if they Dry lease the aircraft just for a short period of time. For such situations it is easier if the aircraft is in CAO.

Under JAR-FCL1, some pre-requisites based on Flight Time under IFR was introduced. In some states this caused issues, because there had never been a requirement to record Flight Time under IFR. The UK addressed this by adopting a conversion rate of 4 hours Flight Time under IFR for every 1 hour of Instrument Flight Time, which was acceptable in JAR-FCL days, but was not deemed to be an acceptable means of compliance under Part-FCL. Since Part-FCL has been applicable, logging of flight time under IFR is required.
