Export certificate of airworthiness
An Export Certificate of Airworthiness shall be issued when the aircraft is intended to be exported into a non-EASA state. The issue of such certificate is not obligatory (in accordance with the ICAO Airw. Manual 9760). However, the applicant shall submit the following for its issue: Application for the issue of Export Certificate of Airworthiness (AIR.OBR-53).
The Export Certificate of Airworthiness (Export CofA) confirms that the particular aircraft complies with the list of type-certificate data (TCDS) and is suitable for safe use. The Export Certificate of Airworthiness does not imply that the aircraft could be already flown. To achieve this, a valid Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA) or Permit to Fly (PtoF) is needed.
In case that the aircraft is exported into a state with a valid agreement with EASA, the export certificate (EASA Form 27) is issued in accordance with the said agreement (for example: BASA). In other cases, in the absence of any agreement between the two countries related to the issuance of the export certificate of airworthiness – the national Export Certificate of Airworthiness shall be issued.
