4.1 If an aircraft type does not qualify for the issue of a Certificate of Airworthiness as detailed in OTAR Part 21.703(b), it may be possible to grant the aircraft a Permit to Fly for the purpose of flying within the Territory of Registry. These aircraft will have previously been certified for flight by the FAA, Transport Canada or EASA via a National Type Approval (TA) process.
4.2 Mandatory Permit Directives (MPDs) issued by either the State of Type Design or State of Type Approval will be automatically adopted by the OTAAs. Owners of such aircraft are therefore required to comply with the requirements of the MPDs.
4.3 If an MPD is considered necessary by an OTAA but the State of Design or State of Type Approval does not agree, the OTAA will raise the matter with ASSI for further review and action. ASSI will review the details of the investigation and if agreed will petition the State of Design/Approval NAA again for a satisfactory resolution or, if unsuccessful, will initiate MPD action on an Overseas Territories wide basis i.e. not just the single OTAA.
4.4 The ASSI instigated MPD will be promulgated to all OTAAs for onward distribution to aircraft owners.
