Background

As many readers involved in the aviation industry are aware, by August 2016, all non-commercial operators of complex aircraft having their principal place of business or residence in European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) Member States (and, crucially, both EASA and non-EASA registered aircraft) will have to comply with the Part-NCC European regulations.

Part-NCC comprises Regulation (EC) No 216/2008 which came into force on 25 August 2008 and Regulation EC 965/2012 which came into force on 28 October 2012.

The EASA requirements titled Part-NCC (non-commercial operations of complex motor-powered aircraft) propose a division of regulatory responsibility between the State of Registry and the State of the Operator. Having attained the new International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Annex 6 Part II requirements for their State of Registry, the operators of aircraft established or resident in an EASA Member State may also need to meet the additional Part-NCC requirements set out in Annex IV to Regulation (EC) No 216/2008.
