Part 1

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR AIRWORTHINESS

CERTIFICATION

1.0

1.00

TYPE AND SERIES AIRCRAFT Every aircraft engaging in international air navigation shall conform to a type design permitting its identification in detail. The type design shall consist of such drawings, specifications, reports, and other documentary evidence as, in the opinion of the authorities of the State concerned or their authorized representatives*, are necessary to enable them to satisfy themselves that the design fulfills all the requirements laid down in these regulations.

The first complete aircraft constructed in accordance with a type design for which an airworthiness certificate is issued will be considered as a type aircraft. Every other complete aircraft, constructed in accordance with the type design of a type aircraft, will be considered as a series aircraft.

ISSUANCE OF AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATE FOR

TYPE AIRCRAFT

1.10 The airworthiness certificate of an aircraft shall be issued

by the State whose nationality the aircraft possesses. Its issuance shall be based on satisfactory results obtained by

the following procedure: 1.11 The said authorities shall obtain all information necessary

to show compliance of the aircraft with the airworthiness

requirements. 1.12 During the course of construction, the aircraft and its

parts (and, when static strength tests are required, the components or parts for that purpose) shall be inspected by the authorities of the State concerned or by a system of inspec

tion recognized by the said authorities as effective. 1.13 This inspection shall be such as to insure that the aircraft

conforms in all essential respects with the particulars contained in the type design, and particularly, that:

(a) All materials and products are in accordance with the (b) All parts of the aircraft are constructed in accordance with the drawings contained in the type design;

specification given in the type design; *Hereinafter referred to conjointly as “the said authorities”.

(c) All the manufacturing processes employed are in accordance with approved methods;

(d) The construction and assembly of the aircraft are satisfactory throughout.

When various provisions in regard to checking and testing on the ground have been satisfied, the said authorities shall proceed with the official flight tests. These tests shall show the aircraft to comply with all requirements for which demonstration in flight is specified.

1.2

ISSUANCE OF AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATES

FOR SERIES AIRCRAFT

1.20

When the authorities of a State receive an application for an airworthiness certificate for a series aircraft, they shall ascertain whether the airplane conforms with the type design and is airworthy and, if so, shall issue the certificate.

EFFECTIVENESS OF AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFI

CATES

[merged small][merged small][ocr errors][merged small][merged small]

The airworthiness certificate of an aircraft shall be rendered effective by the State whose nationality it possesses.

The duration of effectiveness of an airworthiness certificate shall be a maximum of 12 months. Any failure to maintain an aircraft in an airworthy condition, as defined by the minimum requirements laid down in these regulations, shall render the airworthiness certificate ineffective until the aircraft is restored to an airworthy condition.

When an aircraft changes its nationality during the period of effectiveness of its airworthiness certificate, the State whose nationality it acquires may render this certificate of airworthiness effective until the end of such period, without being obliged to require new technical investigations to be carried out.

When an aircraft during the period of effectiveness of its airworthiness certificate has suffered damage, it will be for the authorities of the State whose nationality the aircraft possesses to judge whether such damage is of such a nature as to prevent the aircraft from fulfilling the minimum requirements of safety laid down in these regulations.

When such an aircraft is in a foreign country at the time when the damage is suffered or is ascertained, the authorities of the foreign country shall have the power to prevent such aircraft from resuming its flight, on condition that they immediately advise the authorities of the State whose nationality the aircraft possesses, communicating to them all details necessary to enable them to formulate the judgment

referred to in Section 1.33 above, 627038-45- -12

1.34

1.35

1.36

When the authorities of the State whose nationality the aircraft possesses consider that the damage suffered by the aircraft is of such a nature as to prevent its fulfilling the minimum requirements of safety laid down by these regulations, they shall suspend the certificate of airworthiness of such aircraft and prohibit it from resuming its flight until it once more fulfills the minimum safety requirements.

They may, however, in exceptional cases permit the aircraft to proceed in flight without passengers to the nearest airport at which it can be repaired and once more made to fulfill the minimum safety requirements.

When the authorities of the State whose nationality the aircraft possesses consider that the damage suffered by said aircraft is not of such a nature as to prevent the aircraft from fulfilling the minimum safety requirements, the aircraft shall be allowed to resume its flight.

Any State may delegate its power of decision, in particular, to another State or a technical organization which it recognizes.

It shall be the duty of the authorities of the State which issues the airworthiness certificate for a type aircraft to transmit all technical orders, specifications, et cetera, deemed necessary for the continued airworthiness of aircraft of that type, to the authorities of all other States who are a party to this agreement.

RENEWAL OF AIRWORTHINESS CERTIFICATES

1.40

1.41

1.42

The duration of effectiveness of each renewal of an airworthiness certificate shall be a maximum of 12 months.

To enable an aircraft to continue to engage in international navigation at the expiration of the period of validity shown on its airworthiness certificate, the renewal of the said certificate must be applied for by the owner.

Such renewal shall not be granted unless the aircraft fulfills the minimum safety requirements laid down at the time of its original certification as a type and, in addition, complies with mandatory changes specified in the data issued in accordance with Section 1.38.

The renewal of the airworthiness certificate of an aircraft shall be effected by the authorities of the State whose nationality the aircraft possesses, or, if need be, by their duly accredited representatives.

If at the time of a renewal the aircraft is outside the State whose nationality it possesses, the authorities of such State may apply to the authorities of the State in which the aircraft is situated, requesting them to proceed, by delegation, with the necessary technical investigations for the renewal in question.

Part 2

AIRPLANE AIRWORTHINESS REQUIREMENTS 2.0

GENERAL 2.00 Scope. The airworthiness requirements set forth in this

Part are the minimum requirements which must be met by a civil airplane type design for airplanes engaging in international air navigation. If any of these requirments becomes inapplicable to a particular airplane because of increased knowledge of aeronautics or of the development of unforeseen design features, the said authorities shall establish appropriate requirements providing an equivalent standard

of safety. 2.01 Airplane Categories. Airplanes are divided into the following categories, for the purposes of design and operation:

Normal Suffix “N
Transport Suffix “T
Training Suffix "U"
Acrobatic Suffix "A"

Special
An airplane may be certificated under the requirements in
a particular category or in more than one category provided
that all of the requirements of such categories are met.
Sections of this part which affect only one particular cate-
gory are designated by a suffix added to the appropriate
Section numbers, as indicated above. All sections not
designated by a suffix are applicable to all categories except

as otherwise specified. 2.010 The requirements for normal and transport category air

planes cover non-acrobatic operation. Transport category* airplanes are required for use in all scheduled passenger transportation, except that single engined airplanes meeting the requirements of the normal category may be used in scheduled passenger service under special conditions of route and terrain which are deemed sufficiently safe by the registering State. The requirements for training category airplanes cover limited acrobatic maneuvers essential to primary training. These airplanes will, however, be restricted against snap and inverted maneuvers. Acrobatic category airplanes will have no specific restrictions as to type of maneuvers, unless the necessity therefor is disclosed by the required flight tests. The “Special” category is provided for special purpose aircraft which will not logically fall into any of the above-mentioned categories. The requirements for this category shall be specified by the said authorities and shall be based on the intended operational purpose. Requirements thus imposed shall be transmitted to the other

contracting States for their information. 2.02 Definitions 2.020

General *A cargo subdivision of the transport category is now under consideration and requirements therefor may be incorporated at some future date.
