FAQ Answer

Can an aerodrome be exempted from the scope?

The Basic Regulation (EC 216/2008) does allow the CAA to exempt an aerodrome from the EASA rules if that aerodrome:

a) handles no more than 10,000 passengers per year, and
b) handles no more than 850 movements related to cargo operations per year.

Aerodromes that fall into this category may choose to be exempted from the EASA regulations and continue under the current National regulations; however, they must continue to meet the general safety objectives of Regulation (EC) No 216/2008.
