principal place of business located in the UK, that wishes to carry out maintenance on EASA aircraft with a MTOM of 5700 kg and below and components that are used for non-commercial air transport.
Organisations with their principal place of business located outside the UK, including the Channel Islands, should apply directly to EASA.
