TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES FOR IMPORTED AIRCRAFT Cooperative Development of Operational Safety & Continuing Airworthiness COSCAP
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES OBJECTIVE This chapter provides guidance in the procedure for the issue of a Type Acceptance Certificate for foreign aircraft types, using an automatic acceptance procedure.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Type Certificate. A TC, as defined by FAR 21.41, includes the type design, the operating limitations, the type certificate data sheet (TCDS), the applicable regulations, and any other conditions or limitations prescribed by the FAA
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Recognised countries Recognised country for the purpose of issuing type certificates is a state (ICAO contracting or not) where the NAA has been found to have a comprehensive code of Airworthiness certification and over sight.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Recognised countries The foreign NAA that issued the original Type Certificate will be regarded as the nominated NAA for airworthiness control of the aircraft listed on that certificate. Note: This automatic acceptance procedure must not be applied in situations where the NAA of a recognised country has issued a Type Acceptance Certificate or similar document on the basis that the NAA of another country has issued a Type Certificate.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES (a) Transport; (b) Normal; (c) Utility; (d) Acrobatic; (e) Commuter; (f) Manned free balloons; (g) Primary; (h) Restricted Certificate of Airworthiness Categories Type Acceptance Certificates are issued to enable Certificates of Airworthiness (CoAs) to be issued in one or more of the following categories:
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Certificate of Airworthiness Categories CoAs should usually be issued in the same category available under the foreign Type Certificate, subject to a review by the Authority of the foreign certification basis, including any special conditions, waivers, exemptions, equivalent safety determinations etc. made by the foreign NAA.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Aircraft type details The application should state exactly which models are to be included on the Type Acceptance Certificate. These models must be included on the foreign Type Certificate. Each model included on the Type Acceptance Certificate must be covered by the required data.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Supply of data The following data should be supplied: –A statement of the applicable design certification standards. –General interior arrangement configuration drawings –Three-view drawing exterior configuration. –Master drawing list –Master equipment list
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Supply of data (Continued) –Aircraft Flight Manual including the Configuration Deviation List, if applicable. –Instructions for Continued Airworthiness. –Certification compliance (checklist) –Data and descriptive information needed by the Authority to approve the type certificate data sheet. –Listing of service life for critical parts subject to fatigue.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Supply of continuing airworthiness data Type acceptance is conditional on the continued airworthiness support of the aircraft and components in the form of service bulletins and other instructions, amendments to documents, and foreign airworthiness directives etc. The applicant must arrange for the foreign Type Certificate holder to continue to supply this data.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES The Authority should arrange with the nominated NAA for the supply of airworthiness directives issued by that NAA for the type of aircraft concerned.
CONDITIONS, REFUSAL, SUSPENSION OR CANCELLATION Issue of a Type Acceptance Certificate subject to conditions –The Authority may issue a Type Acceptance Certificate (TAC) subject to conditions, provided there are reasonable grounds for believing that issuing the certificate without imposing conditions or taking other measures would constitute a significant threat to aviation safety.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES CONDITIONS, REFUSAL, SUSPENSION OR CANCELLATION Refusal to issue a Type Acceptance Certificate Note that Authority may, refuse to issue a Type Acceptance Certificate if there are reasonable safety grounds not to do so.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Suspension or cancellation of a TAC. The Authority may suspend or cancel a TAC if it considers that it is necessary to do so in the interests of aviation safety. An inability on the part of the foreign Type Certificate holder to provide ongoing technical support for the aircraft type may constitute grounds for such suspension or cancellation.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Consultation The Authority should consult with and consider the views of, the applicant, the NAA that issued the foreign Type Certificate, and the manufacturer.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES Director should exercise powers personally Normally only the Director has the power to: –issue a Type Acceptance Certificate subject to a condition, –refuse to issue a Type Acceptance Certificate or –suspend or cancel a Type Acceptance Certificate.
AGED TRANSPORT CATEGORY AIRCRAFT The applicant should be aware that before a standard CoA can be issued to such an aircraft, the Authority may require additional data related to the aircraft history, structural integrity programs, supplementary inspections etc.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES TYPE CERTIFICATION COMPLETION CHECKLIST Resolution of all technical issues. A statement from the Authority certifying compliance with the type certification basis or agreed certification criteria (including additional technical conditions). Compliance checklist.
TYPE ACCEPTANCE CERTIFICATES CHECK LIST Instructions for Continued Airworthiness or Airworthiness Limitations. Draft Aircraft Flight Manual. Draft Type Certificate Data Sheet. Noise Evaluation Statement (not required for amended TCs). Programme Dates established (end, TCDS follows)
