The Part-NNC model
If you do not wish or require a full Aircraft Management solution or you fly your aircraft on a private basis FlexFlight can also assist with a Part-NNC solution.
By August 2016, all non-commercial operators of complex aircraft that have their principal place of business or residence in EASA Member States will have to comply with Part-NNC, a new European regulation.
What aircraft are affected?
All aircraft heavier than 5,700kg, or equipped with more than 19 seats, or equipped with more than one jet or turboprop engine must comply with Part-NCC. All helicopters heavier than 3,175kg, or equipped with more than nine seats, or with a minimum crew of at least two, must also be compliant with Part-NCC.
Who does it affect?
Part-NNC is important for people and companies in Europe or flying to Europe by private aircraft on a regular basis. The regulations apply to all operators of complex aircraft that fall within specified weight and size guidelines, and that have a principal place of business or residence in the EU, even if the aircraft is registered in a non-EASA country.
The NNC solution includes:
– Operations Manuals
– Management Systems
