Making an initial application for an exemption from the Air Navigation Order (CAP 393)
When properly justified the Air Navigation Order allows the UK CAA to consider granting an exemption for National Aircraft from the compliance with mandatory requirements in the event of unforeseen urgent operational circumstances or operational needs of a limited duration, provided the level of safety is not adversely affected
The cost of issuing an Exemption against requirements of the Air Navigation Order is £791 per application.
In the case of discrepancies, the CAA Scheme of Charges ORS 5, Scheme of Charges refers and will be the definitive charge
The service standard for the issue of an exemption is 10 working days from receipt of a completed application and appropriate fee.
The validity period will be assessed and granted according to individual case circumstances
One application form should be completed for each exemption request and forwarded to Applications and Approvals (A&A) either by email or post
