Overseas Territories Aviation Requirements
ASSI publishes the OTARs on behalf of the Governor of Bermuda in support of the Governor’s powers contained in the AN(OT)O. OTARs provide details of the means of compliance with the AN(OT)O which are acceptable to the Governor. They describe the way in which aircraft operators, aviation personnel and providers of services can gain approvals and licences, and the process through which these are maintained to ensure internationally-agreed upon standards are met, as well as, acceptable levels of safety and internationally-agreed standards. They are not intended to supersede or conflict with statutory requirements, and so the obligation to comply with statutory requirements remains.
BCAA may accept an alternative means of compliance (AMOC), provided that the applicant can show that the level of safety will not be reduced below that intended by the requirement. OTAR part numbers have been allocated because of industry familiarity with the topics and numbering.
Relevant OTARs are outlined below. All OTARS can be found on the ASSI website.
