FAQ Answer

Are there clear definitions of Air Taxi and Night Freight?

Air taxi operation is defined in the EASA proposals as “for the purpose of flight time and duty time limitations, non-scheduled on demand commercial operations with an aeroplane with a passenger seating configuration of 19 or less”. There is not currently a clear definition of Night Freight or Sole Night Cargo. The CAA has commented on the lack of a definition for this area in its response to the EASA Comment Response Document on NPA 2010-14. The rulemaking tasks in respect of FTL Certification Specifications 2, 3 and 4 continue with EASA and they are aware that they may need to add further definitions to the section 1 material.
