Aircraft that do not have a valid Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA) or Restricted CofA but are capable of safe flight under defined conditions may be eligible for a Permit to Fly (PtF) under Part 21 Subpart P.A PtF is generally required when the aircraft is capable of performing safe flight but its Cof A is temporarily invalidated for reasons such as:
For a PtF to be issued, the safe condition of the aircraft must first be established. Certain conditions or limitations may be applied to provide an acceptable assurance of safe operation. These are termed ‘Flight Conditions’. The PtF can be issued by a Design, Production or Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation with appropriate competence and Privilege or by the CAA in accordance with the Permit to Fly process.
The establishment and approval of the Flight Conditions is done either by a Design Organisation with appropriate competence and Privilege or by the CAA. When approved by the CAA, the CAA will complete a CAA Form 18B to confirm the approval of Flight Conditions.
Anyone may apply for the CAA approval of the Flight Conditions.
An application is made using CAA Form SRG1767 and completion of CAA Form 18B
Submit an application on CAA Form SRG1767 and a CAA Form 18B with Blocks 1 through to 8 completed.
Block 7 of the CAA Form 18B will detail the substantiation that the
aircraft can fly safely and Block 8 will detail any conditions or
CAA will review the data presented on the CAA Form 18B and consider
the conditions for safe flight, particularly the detail in Blocks 7 and 8.
CAA may require the Applicant to re-submit the Form 18B if amendments
to substantiation or conditions/restrictions are required.
