    How much does it cost?

    Please refer to the CAA Scheme of Charges: Scheme of Charges

    How long will it take for my application to be processed?

    The certification process will take a minimum of 60 days from the date on which the aerodrome manual is agreed with the CAA.

    It is important that applicants submit the required paperwork sufficiently early to allow for detailed consideration of the application, and for inspection of the site. The CAA cannot undertake to reach a certification decision within a particular time scale or to meet a commercial deadline of the applicant.
