Information on how to apply for the issue or renewal of an ELA Approval
The approval is limited to the ELA1 aircraft types for which the LAE holds a valid Part 66 licence.
Once approved, the LAE may make recommendations to the CAA for the re-issue of an ARC for an ELA1 category aircraft, based on the satisfactory completion of an Airworthiness Review. Recommendations for individual aircraft can be made for two consecutive years, after which the next ARC issue must be performed by a suitably approved (Part M Subpart G with ARC privileges) CAMO.
The initial approval will be valid for 2 years, after which time it will be necessary to apply for the renewal.
Note: The holder of the approval may only exercise the privileges of the approval when the holders Part 66 licence is valid in accordance with Part 66.A.20(b).
