Overseas Territories Aviation Circulars are issued to provide advice, guidance and information on standards, practices and procedures necessary to support Overseas Territory Aviation Requirements. They are not in themselves law but may amplify a provision of the Air Navigation (Overseas Territories) Order or provide practical guidance on meeting a requirement contained in the Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements.
This Circular provides guidance on the purpose, structure and content of the Operations Manual required by OTAR Part 119 for AOC holders operating under OTAR Parts 121 or 135. It may also be of assistance to non-Commercial Air Transport operators, including those subject to OTAR Part 125. (The paragraph numbering for Part 125 aligns with that for Parts 121 and 135.)
This Circular relates to OTAR Part 119, 121, 125 and 135.
Third issue. Change to guidance in Appendix A, Part A, 1.1 and 8.2, with regards to Ground Handling aspects to be covered within operations manuals, to bring into line with amendments to OTAR Parts 121 and 135 in Issue 12. 12.1(h) amended to include acceptance of ATC clearances.
Enquiries regarding the content of this Circular should be addressed to Air Safety Support International or to the appropriate Overseas Territory Aviation Authority.
