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.

Organisations should ensure that an appropriate system of communication is in place within their company so that information contained within OTACs is notified promptly to those individuals that need to be advised.


This OTAC details the arrangement an aircraft owner or operator should carry out in order to make an application to the Overseas Territories Aviation Authority (OTAA) for a Permit to Fly to operate an aircraft where the Certificate of Airworthiness is no longer in force due to an altered configuration or deviation from approved data and or requirements.


This Circular relates to OTAR Parts 21, 91, 119, 121, 125 and 135.


Amendment of terminology “Temporary Permit to Fly” to “Special Flight Permit” and updating of validity, in force and limitations in line with ICAO Annex 8.


Enquiries regarding the content of this Circular should be addressed to Air Safety Support International at the address on the ASSI website or to the appropriate Overseas Territory Aviation Authority.
