How are the Rotorcraft Product categories defined for the calculation of the EASA Fees and Charges?
Implementing Regulation 2019/2153 establishes the EASA Fees and Charges and defines in Part V points (2) and (3) the following categories of Rotorcraft Products for this purpose (only):
“‘VTOL’ refers to rotorcraft or any other heavier-than-air aircraft that has the capability of vertical take-off and/or vertical landing. ‘HTOL’ refers to any heavier-than-air aircraft that is not a VTOL.“
“‘VTOL Large Aircraft’ refers to CS-29 and CS-27 CAT A aircraft; ‘VTOL Small Aircraft’ refers to CS-27 aircraft with maximum take-off weight (MTOW) below 3 175 kg and limited to 4 seats, including pilot; ‘VTOL Medium Aircraft’ refers to other CS-27 aircraft.”
The applicable Fees and Charges category for each product can be consulted in the EASA website under 'Product Lists'.
