How to apply for a Certificate of Airworthiness (Export)
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.
