Export Certificate of Airworthiness

An Export Certificate of Airworthiness may be required by an importing State Civil Aviation Authority to provide confirmation that the current State of Registry has conducted a recent satisfactory review of the airworthiness status of the aircraft and, apart from any agreed deviations, found the aircraft to be in compliance with the applicable Type Certificate.

The Export Certificate of Airworthiness is not a flight authority and does not authorise the aircraft for flight.

There is no validity period for an Export Certificate of Airworthiness. It is up to the importing State Civil Aviation Authority to determine the period for which it will accept it as valid.
