Need for the Document[edit]

A person should not fly an aircraft unless there is in force in respect of that aircraft a certificate of airworthiness or restricted certificate of airworthiness or a special flight permit duly issued or rendered valid under the law of the State of Registry and any conditions subject to which the certificate was issued or rendered valid are complied with.

The Authority may issue a special flight permit for an aircraft that is capable of safe flight but unable to meet applicable airworthiness requirements for the purpose of:

  • Flying to a base where weighing, painting, repairs, modifications, maintenance, or inspections are to be performed or to a point of storage.
  • Flying for the purpose of experimenting with or testing the aircraft including its engines and equipment.
  • Flying for the purpose of qualifying for the issue, renewal or validation of certificate of airworthiness or restricted certificate of airworthiness and the approval of a modification of the aircraft.
  • Delivering or exporting the aircraft.
  • Evacuating aircraft from areas of impending danger and
  • Operating at mass in excess of the aircraft's maximum certified takeoff mass for flight beyond normal range over water or land areas where adequate landing facilities or appropriate fuel are unavailable with the excess mass limited to additional fuel, fuel-carrying facilities, and navigation equipment necessary for the flight.


Information which might help[edit]

  • Since a Special Flight Permit is issued to cover operation of an aircraft which may not meet airworthiness standards, the UCAA will require the applicant to make appropriate inspections or tests, for the purpose of determining and prescribing appropriate operating limitations.
