Requirements for non-public transport flights

2.  (1)  A flight under instrument flight rules to an aerodrome where there is no suitable alternate available must not commence unless the destination aerodrome has a designated instrument approach procedure and the weather forecast for two hours either side of the estimated time of arrival is for visual meteorological conditions. (Article 4(1), (2) and (9)).

(2) An operator must ensure that a helicopter rotor is not turned under power without a qualified pilot at the controls. (Article 4(3)).

(3) The commander of an aircraft in the United Kingdom must reasonably satisfy himself before the aircraft takes off as to a number of specified safety matters, whether or not that aircraft is registered in the United Kingdom. (Article 4(4)).

(8) The commander of an aircraft flying for a purpose other than public transport must demonstrate the use of oxygen equipment carried on board to all passengers, recommend its use where appropriate and ensure that the flight crew use oxygen where appropriate. (Article 4(6)).

(9) On any aircraft registered in the United Kingdom, where an area of the fuselage suitable for break-in by rescue crews in an emergency are marked on the aircraft, the markings must conform to international requirements. (Article 4(8)).

When flying over areas in which search and rescue would be especially difficult an automatic ELT must be carried. (Article 4(11) and (13)).

(16) Aircraft other than gliders flying under instrument flight rules for a purpose other than public transport must carry radio equipment. (Article 4(18)).

The equipment must be operated in accordance with procedures approved by the CAA. (Article 5).

Balloon flying displays

4.  Flying displays in which the only participating aircraft are balloons do not need a flying display permission. (Article 6).

Introduction of 8.33kHz channel spacing

5.  From 15th March 2007, an aircraft flying above flight level 195 in the United Kingdom must carry radio communications equipment capable of maintaining direct two-way communication with the appropriate air traffic control units on the intended route using the frequencies notified by the CAA for that purpose. (Article 7).

Other changes

6.  (1)  An aircraft which is certificated for use under the Visual Flight Rules is not thereby prohibited from flying in accordance with the visual reference provisions of the Rules of the Air. (Article 8(1)).

7.  New offences are created for breaches of Articles 52A, 54A and 62A. (Articles 4(19) and 5(6)).

Regulatory Impact Assessments

8.  Save in the case of the changes relating to Balloon Flying Displays referred to in paragraph 4 above and the other changes referred to in paragraph 6 above, a Regulatory Impact Assessment has been produced and a copy placed in the library of both Houses of Parliament. Copies may be obtained from the Department for Transport, Great Minster House, 76 Marsham Street, London SW1P 4DR. Alternatively copies can be obtained from the Department’s website which is at www.dft.gov.uk.

(1)

1982 c.16; sections 60 and 61 have been amended by the Airports Act 1986 (c.31) Schedule 6 Part 11, and section 60 was further amended by the Aviation and Maritime Security Act 1990 (c.31), section 47 and Schedule 4.

(2)

S.I. 2005/1970, to which there are amendments not relevant to this Order.

(3)

An EASA aircraft is required by virtue of Part 21 to carry its certificate of airworthiness, restricted certificate of airworthiness or permit to fly, as the case may be, during all flights.

(4)

The additional requirement for helicopters, namely the requirement to carry Scale G(2) equipment, is included in article 3(3) for clarity and convenience since this requirement is contained in the part of Schedule 4 to the Air Navigation Order 2005 which article 3(3) substitutes in order to make changes in relation to flight visibility.
