Continued Airworthiness Management Organisation Approvals

All owners/operators of Bermuda registered aircraft above 2,700 kg Maximum Takeoff Mass must have arrangements for continued airworthiness management, either by holding an approval to the requirements of OTAR Part 39, or by contracting an organisation that holds such an approval.

OTAR Part 39 has three approval options:

Subpart E Option 1: Acceptance of an approval granted by EASA under Part M Subpart G.

Subpart E Option 2: Direct approval by the BCAA of an organisation that does not hold an approval granted by EASA under Part M Subpart G.

OTAR 39 Subpart F: Organisations responsible for airworthiness management of Bermuda registered aircraft operating under an ICAO Article 83bis agreement with another state must be authorised in accordance with OTAR 39 Subpart F.
