Non-Commercial Operations for complex motor-powered aircraft.
How can you identify a private flight versus a commercial flight with regard to the EASA Basic Regulation ?
Commercial Air Operations shall mean any operation of an aircraft, in return for remuneration or other valuable consideration, which is available to the public or, when not made available to the public, which is performed under a contract between an operator and a customer, where the latter has no control over the operator.
The second option to identify a ‘commercial air transport operations’ (EASA PART-CAT) is defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 as follows:
Commercial Air Transport Operations (CAT) means an aircraft operation to transport passengers, cargo or mail for remuneration or other valuable consideration.
The new regulation EASA PART-NCC (Non-Commercial Operations for complex motor-powered aircraft (MPA) Multi-Pilots Aircraft)
In accordance with Regulation (EC) N°800 / 2013, EASA-PART-NCC shall be compulsory as from August 25th 2016.
This Regulation, concerns the private flights operations only. Any non-commercial air operations for complex motor-powered aircraft having their main establishment or their main residence in an EASA member State, (independently of the State of registration of their aircraft) shall apply for a NCC agreement.
The main objective of EASA PART-NCC is to take into account the principle of proportionality and the need for different safety levels between private and commercial air operator. The air safety levels were based on a risk hierarchy ranging from private air operations with a fare-paying commercial air operators’ passengers which require the highest safety level to non-commercial air operations with complex aircraft (NCC) which require a proportionate and acceptable safety level.
