I want to apply for approval of flight conditions - what do I need to do? I want to apply for Permit to Fly - what do I need to do?
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is responsible for the approval of flight conditions. Such an approval is the basis on which a Permit to Fly (PtF) can be issued by the Competent Authority of the State of Registry, or of the State prescribing the identification marks of an aircraft.
A PtF is generally issued when a certificate of airworthiness is temporarily invalid, or when a certificate of airworthiness cannot be granted, but the aircraft is nevertheless capable of performing a safe flight.
Please use EASA Form FO.CERT.00037 (with EASA Form 18B in the annex) to apply for approval of flight conditions at EASA. With the approved flight conditions (EASA Form 18B) you can apply for a Permit to Fly at the local national aviation authority the aircraft is registered.
More information can be found in the fact sheet on Permit to Fly which is published on the EASA website. Please click here.
