Special Flight Permit Application
An application form obtained from the applicable OTAA should be completed and returned with any supporting documentation.
The completion of the application form will require specific technical justification supporting the nature of the intended flight or journey, which must detail the reasons why the Certificate of Airworthiness is not in force.
The specific technical justification may require support from a suitable engineering organisation or from the type certificate holder.
Early communication with the applicable OTAA is advised in order to facilitate obtaining the appropriate technical justification.
The Special Flight Permit application form also requires a declaration by the applicable OTAR Part 39 Continued Airworthiness Management Organisation or person authorised by the Governor that the aircraft has no features and characteristics making it unsafe for the intended flight(s).
The OTAA may reserve the right to visit the aircraft or view its records prior to granting a Permit to Fly.
