FAQ n.21600

What is the difference between the EASA TCO Authorisation and an operating permit issued by an EASA member State?


The TCO Authorisation is a safety authorisation issued by EASA following a technical assessment. This technical authorisation issued by EASA is a mandatory prerequisite when applying with any EASA Member State for commercial traffic rights (operating permits), which continue to be issued directly by Member States.
