Organisations may hold an approval from Brazilian Aviation Authority ANAC to maintain aircraft or engines and propellers for aircraft that are registered on the Brazilian Aircraft Register.
A Memorandum of Understanding between UK and Brazil was signed on 2 December 2020.
The Memorandum of Understanding means that the UK CAA will undertake the oversight of organisations that hold UK Part 145 approval and RBAC 145 Approval.
Organisations must be based in the UK and hold:
- A valid UK Part 145 approval.
- A current RBAC 145 approval.
How much does it cost?
Approvals are subject to an annual continuation fee detailed in the UK CAA Scheme of Charges therefore no charge is payable to the UK CAA upon application for continuation.
In the event of a discrepancy between the information here and the Official Record Series 5, CAA Scheme of Charges (Airworthiness, Noise Certification and Aircraft and Aircraft Engine Emissions), the Scheme of Charges takes precedence.
Payments can be made by credit or debit card or by bank transfer or by a cheque made payable to the Civil Aviation Authority.
Note: You can find the applicable fee according to instructions on the ANAC website (National Civil Aviation Agency of Brazil).
How long will it take for my application to be processed?
- The application will be processed by Approvals & Certification (A&C) and forwarded to the CAA Regional Surveyor for review within 10 working days.
How long is it valid for?
Once granted, a RBAC Approval is valid for 24 months unless suspended, cancelled or revoked.
Applicants should be aware that the RBAC may request suspension of the approval at any time if the conditions of approval are not met.
- Applications for changes must be made coincidentally to UK Part 145 approvals.
- Proof of payment of fee.
- The MOE Supplement should be amended if required and submitted for review and acceptance.
- Submit the online application together with the Form F-143-17 and MOE Supplement to the CAA's Approvals & Certification (A&C) Department via email to email@example.com
