What is the EASA responsible for?
As described above, EASA is normally responsible for the approval of the flight conditions on the basis of which a permit to fly can be issued by the Competent Authority.
The Agency approves the Flight Conditions in cases related to the safety of the design, defined as follows:
- the aircraft does not conform to an approved design; or
- an Airworthiness Limitation, a Certification Maintenance Requirement or an Airworthiness Directive has not been complied with; or
- the intended flight(s) are outside the approved envelope.
