UK Reg (EU) 2018/395 (the Balloons Rulebook)

Balloons - Consolidated Regulation, Acceptable Means of Compliance and Guidance Material to UK Regulation (EU) 2018/395 (Aviation Regulatory Library)

Regulation last amended 21 June 2023

AMC/GM/CS (as applicable) last amended 15 December 2022

Aviation Regulatory Library

The Aviation Regulation Library contains the up to date consolidation of the individual Regulations, Acceptable Means of Compliance (AMC), Guidance Material (GM) and, where appropriate, Certification Specifications (CS).

This consolidated material is available in two formats, as a webpage, with expandable elements of the regulation, AMC, GM and CS, and a PDF document, which sets out regulation with corresponding AMC, GM and CS in sequential order.

As these consolidations are published separate links to each regulation and its respective AMC/GM/CS will be replaced by a single link to the Aviation Regulatory Library.
