FAQ n.136912

Is it allowed for Russian citizens to fly, either as pilot-in-command or co-pilot, a non-Russian registered aircraft that performs flights under a non-Russian air operator certificate (AOC), or an aircraft the owner of which is not Russian?


Yes, such flights are allowed provided that the pilot is an employee (or similar) of an air carrier or aircraft operator, provided that the aircraft is not operated by a Russian air carrier, not registered in Russia and not owned or chartered or otherwise controlled by any Russian natural or legal person, entity or body.

However, Russian citizens, if employed by a Russian operator, or operating privately with for example a PPL, are covered by the prohibition under Article 3dand are not allowed to land in, take off from or overfly the territory of the EU.
