Special Flight Permit Release Certificate
For an aircraft registered in the Territory, as specified in OTAR Part 21.705 and OTAR Part 43.155(b), the organisation or person issuing a Special Flight Permit Release Certificate shall be first satisfied that:
(a) the associated documentation is in place and that all applicable maintenance and continuing airworthiness requirements for the intended flight has been evaluated as satisfactory by an OTAR Part 39 approved organisation, or a person authorised by the Governor; and
(b) the aircraft has been physically inspected and any maintenance disturbance has been carried out in conformance with OTAR Part 145, instructions and standards promulgated by the aircraft manufacturer and any prescribed by the Governor; and
(c) the aircraft is configured to the conditions prescribed on the Special Flight Permit certificate.
For an aircraft not registered in the Territory, the operator or owner should provide sufficient technical justification via a special permit to fly or equivalent document issued under the control of the aircraft’s state of registry airworthiness authority. In these cases, the OTAA will only validate the document to authorize flight in OTAA airspace.
For an aircraft registered in the Territory, on successful completion of the evaluation, a Special Flight Permit Release Certificate (SFPRC) shall be issued to certify that the aircraft is fit for flight. The certificate shall be issued for a specific period.
A suggested format of the Special Flight Permit Release Certificate follows:
A Special Flight Permit Release Certificate may only be issued by the following:
(a) an individual within a OTAR Part 145 Organisation who is authorised in accordance with OTAR Part 43.153(b) and listed in the Maintenance Organisation Exposition for this purpose; or
(b) a person specifically authorised by the Governor for this purpose.
