Guidance for Applicants
Application to issue a new EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence and any Type Ratings on the licence will have any exclusions from the certification privileges lifted.
You must hold an EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Licence with the relevant unrestricted basic category/sub category.
You must ensure the relevant basic category/sub category is unrestricted; you are unable to lift limitations from a type rating if the basic category/sub category is still restricted.
You must complete a type course conducted by an appropriately approved Part 147 maintenance organisation, the course can cover theoretical and practical elements.
If the practical elements are not completed at an approved Part 147 maintenance organisation, then currently the practical maintenance experience must be gained within an appropriately approved Part 145 maintenance organisation and should be applicable to the limitations you are removing the type ratings(s).
The cost is £54.00 to lift the limitations from the Type Rating(s) (this also includes if applying to lift limitations from a basic category/sub-category at the same time).
There will also be a rolling renewal fee applicable that will need to be calculated.
An additional fee will be payable if you wish your documents to be returned by secure courier.
We will endeavour to process applications within 10 working days from date of receipt.
The licence is valid for 5 years from the date of issue.
You must ensure that copies of all documents are certified as true copies by your Quality Manager or the most senior person within the organisation.
