All over 25kg authorisations are now issued by the CAA for one year rather than the old exemptions that were valid for 3 years.
All exemptions expired on 1 Jan 2022 regardless of the expiry date written on them.
Authorisations are only valid in combination with the LMA Article 16 authorisation, so you must be a current LMA member to legally fly an over 25kg aircraft.
To renew your authorisation, please complete the form below to request the renewal documents, ideally at least a month before the current authorisation expires.
You will be sent by email a certificate of design and construction and a certificate of flight test for each aircraft you want to renew.
The application will then need to be made by you on the CAA website, and you’ll get the authorisation directly from the CAA by email.
