Aircraft Maintenance Organisation Approvals

Any organisation seeking to maintain a Bermuda registered aircraft must be approved in accordance with OTAR Part 145. There are two approval options under OTAR 145:

Option 1: Acceptance of an approval granted by the FAA, EASA or Transport Canada.

Option 2: Direct approval by the BCAA of an organisation that does not hold any maintenance approvals granted by the FAA, EASA or Transport Canada.

Applicable Requirements
