Appendix I to AMC to Annex III (Part-66) - Aircraft type ratings for Part-66 aircraft maintenance licences

This Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) addresses a regulatory coordination issue related to aircraft type ratings.

According to the AMC to Annex III (Part-66), type ratings should be endorsed on an aircraft maintenance licence (AML) in accordance with Appendix I to AMC to Part-66 ‘List of type ratings’.

An NPA is issued regularly to amend this list, after assessing feedback received from the industry, and to add new aircraft types or to remove aircraft types whose type certificate (TC) has been revoked or surrendered.

This NPA adds also the tables of the new Group as a consequence of the introduction of the ‘L’ licence subcategories by Commission Regulation (EU) 2018/1142.

The main objective is to ensure a common standard throughout the Member States.
