EASA issued a set of standard changes and repairs, reducing maintenance and operating costs. The decision to adopt Certification Specifications for Standard Changes & Standard Repairs (CS-STAN) eliminates the need for approval for the specified changes and repairs for light aircraft in General Aviation. This long-awaited approach will simplify the process of making standard changes and repairs to a broad swath of general aviation aircraft in Europe. You can read more about the EASA Decision in the Explanatory Note here. CS-STAN is part of the Agency’s activities within the General Aviation Road Map to create simpler, lighter and better regulations for the General Aviation community.
