Exporting a UK Registered Aircraft

How to apply for a Certificate of Airworthiness (Export)

Overview


The validation of an Export Certificate of Airworthiness (E CofA) indicates that the aircraft in question conforms to the described TCDS and is considered to be in a condition for safe operation. The Export CofA does not grant authority for flight. A valid C of A, Permit to Fly or other current airworthiness document satisfactory to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) requirements will still be necessary.

 

  • CAP 553 BCAR Section A contains detailed information regarding CofAs for Export where the CAA has primary responsibility for Type.
  • CAP 554 BCAR Section B contains detailed information regarding CofAs for Export where the CAA does not have primary responsibility for Type.

  • Exporting a UK registered EASA aircraft to the United States of America or Canada
