National Airworthiness Review Certificates (N ARC)

Guidance for applicants

Overview

As of the 10 August 2012 all national aircraft registered in the UK and operating on a National (Non-EASA) Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA) are being issued with a non-expiring CofA supported by a National Airworthiness Review Certificate (National ARC).

This change takes place as the current National CofA expires and on receipt of a recommendation made by an appropriately approved organisation. 

By 10 August 2015 all National Aircraft will have converted to a Non expiring Certificate of Airworthiness.

Before your National ARC expires, you need to ensure that a new National ARC is issued or if the appropriate requirements are met that the current National ARC is extended in order to fly legally
