Creating exceptional EASA NCC Manuals

EASA NCC Manuals

EASA Air Operations Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 Part-NCC applies to non-commercial flights in complex motor-powered aircraft. Part-NCC came into effect on 25th August 2016.

Part-NCC requires each operator to adhere to the same essential requirements as commercial air transport operators but the rules are proportionate - instead of holding an AOC, operators must submit a declaration to the Competent Authority about their operation.

Who is affected?

Operators of complex motor-powered aircraft flying non-commercial flights;

  • with an aircraft which is registered in an EASA State, or;

  • with an aircraft that is registered in a non-EASA State but where the operator is established or residing in an EASA State.

What is classed as a ‘complex motor-powered aircraft’?

Complex motor-powered aircraft means;

  • an aeroplane:

    • with a maximum certificated take-off mass exceeding 5700 kg, or;

    • certificated for a maximum passenger seating configuration of more than nineteen, or;

    • certificated for operation with a minimum crew of at least two pilots, or;

    • equipped with (a) turbojet engine(s) or more than one turboprop engine, or;

  • a helicopter certificated:

    • for a maximum take-off mass exceeding 3175 kg, or;

    • for a maximum passenger seating configuration of more than nine, or;

    • for operation with a minimum crew of at least two pilots, or;

  • a tilt-rotor aircraft

What is required from affected operators?

Operators must, for example:

  • Have an operations manual

  • Have a management system

  • Complete and submit a declaration to the Competent Authority which details their aircraft type, their operational and continuing airworthiness arrangements, any approvals held etc.

An 'Operator' is classed as any one person or organisation that looks after a privately owned aircraft (either their own or on behalf of an owner). The operator is the person or company who decides when the aircraft goes into maintenance, does the flight planning or organises anything else associated with the operation of the aircraft).

Once compliant, operators of aircraft affected by the EASA regulations who are a resident, or have their principal place of business, in the UK must make their declaration to the CAA (in accordance with Part-ORO). Operators from other EU member states must make their declaration to their own Competent Authority.

We have a lot of experience in writing manuals for AOC holders, ATO holders, SPO operators and NCC operators. We have written manuals for more than 30 different ATO's and have written AOC manuals for several different operators. Manual writing is what we do best.

Our NCC manuals come in three parts:

  • Part NCC Operations Manual

  • Part ORO Compliance Monitoring Manual

  • Part ORO Safety Management Manual
