A national approval, British Civil Airworthiness Requirements (BCAR), are issued under the Air Navigation Order and
cover design, manufacture, certification, maintenance, continuing airworthiness management and flight testing of
aircraft excluded from European Council Regulation (EC) 216/2008, as amended, including those aircraft listed in Annex
II (commonly referred to Non-EASA aircraft).
For cost information please see: Airworthiness Application Charges.
Correctly completed applications will be processed, acknowledged and passed to the Regional Office for investigation
within 10 working days. Approval certificates will be processed and dispatched within 20 working days following receipt
of a recommendation from a CAA regional office.
Once approval is granted, approvals remain valid unless cancelled, suspended or revoked.
