IAOPA Europe
Regional Meeting
Reykjavik - 7. Maj 2014
• GA concerns presented by IAOPA &
EAS at EASA Management Board
March 2012
• Followed up by a working group
consisting of GA, memberstates and
EASA which resulted in the ”European
GA Safety Strategy” document,
adopted by the MB as ”Roadmap for
Regulation of GA”
GA Safety Strategy Principles
One size does not fit all. GA should be handled quite separately from CAT and
merits a different, proportionate approach based on an acceptable risk hierarchy.
Adopt a philosophy of minimum necessary rules focusing on the main risks.
Adopt a risk-based approach to targeted safety initiatives and rulemaking, based
on risk assessment, and supported by empirical evidence in the form of good
quality accident rate and causal data from which statistically significant trends
are identified.
Protect “grandfather rights”, unless there are demonstrable and statistically
significant safety reasons for not doing so.
Minimize bureaucracy and apply EU “Smart Regulation Principles”, taking into
account the specificities of GA.
Make best use of available resources of expertise and devolve responsibilities
and delegate tasks to the level where they can be exercised most efficiently,
including to GA organisations.
Established summer 2013
Central part of EASAs new “Simpler, lighter and better rules for
general aviation” strategy presented at AERO 2014
IAOPA represented by
• Michael Erb (AOPA Germany) and

GA SUB SSCC Issue List
• “For the purposes of the GA subSSCC, General Aviation is civil aviation
excluding airline operations.”
• Focus: Only light end or a broad
• Issues divided into ”Proposals” (quick
fix) and ”Projects” (long term)
Airworthiness Projects:
Process for changes and repairs
• Acceptance of third country data for aircraft modifications or
• Removal of EASA approval requirement for minor
• Standard changes and repairs
OSD, MELS and Defect Management
• Current rules not suitable for GA
• Bring back good airmanship practice
Proportionate Initial Airworthiness Procedures
Airworthiness Proposals:
• A definitive list of major modifications and
• Guidance for the use of foreign repair
stations which do not have an EASA
• Guidance for owner produced parts
• Take inspiration from the US
• Validation of foreign STCs
Flight Standards Projects
Oversight in Flight Training/Testing
Too heavy organisational requirements driving costs with no added safety
(ATOs instead of RF etc.)
Lack of harmonisation
Facilitation of international airsports and tourism
Easy access to validation of third country license for pilot tourists
Easing of language requirements when flying between Member States
Training and checking checking process
Focus on what is needed in practice
Increase use of competency based approach
Availablity of instructors
Simulator requirements for high performance aircraft
Flight Standards: Proposals
• Dangerous Goods
• Need for adjustments to Rules and
• Need for AMC/Guidance
• Definition of ”passenger”
• Oxygen requirements
• Best practice regarding icing
Horisontal Projects
Issues from Basic Regulation
• The definition of ”commercial
• The definition of ”complex motorpowered aircraft”
• The application of BR to third country
aircraft and license holders
EU Reg 379/2014
Defines ”Introductory flights”, ”Competition flights”, ”Flying
Exempts following operations from commercial requirements:
cost-shared flights by private individuals, on the condition that the direct
cost is shared by all the occupants of the aircraft, pilot included and the
number of persons sharing the direct costs is limited to six;
competition flights or flying displays, on the condition that the
remuneration or any valuable consideration given for such flights is limited
to recovery of direct costs and a proportionate contribution to annual
costs, as well as prizes of no more than a value specified by the
competent authority;
introductory flights, parachute dropping, sailplane towing or aerobatic
flights performed either by a training organisation having its principal
place of business in a Member State and approved in accordance with
Regulation (EU) No 1178/2011, or by an organisation created with the
aim of promoting aerial sport or leisure aviation, on the condition that
the aircraft is operated by the organisation on the basis of ownership or
dry lease, that the flight does not generate profits distributed outside of
the organisation, and that whenever non-members of the organisation
are involved, such flights represent only a marginal activity of the
Applicable from July 1’st 2014
• Note: The operations are exempt from
commercial requirements – they are
not defined as non-commercial
• EU Reg 245/2014 allows the use of a
PPL/LAPL license for these operations
