Flight Test, EASA Permit to Fly and UK B-Conditions
EASA Permit to Fly
For all aircraft operating on an EASA C of A or EASA Permit to Fly, test flying for development or compliance verification of a Change (Modification) requires a test programme specific EASA Permit to Fly. This also applies to new aircraft Types which are not excluded as a Type from EASA control through Annex II of 1592/2002.
For aircraft operation on a UK Nation C of A or UK National Permit to Fly, i.e. individual aircraft examples excluded from EASA control either through 1592/2002 article 1(2) or Annex II, test flying for development or compliance verification of a Change (Modification) requires a B-Conditions organisation approval in accordance with BCAR A8-9.
