Channel Islands / Isle of Man / San Marino aircraft registry / register (merged)

The operator based in the EU statement doesn’t absolve anyone of having an EASA licence even if you base the operator outside of the EU, with aircraft and pilots based in the EU.

Can you point to the rule that requires that?

While I agree with you about the drafting, I tend to think that, certainly regarding private aviation, that the drafting does not meet the intention of the legislators.

Also, again in private aviation, it is quite difficult to separate the owner/pilot from being the operator.

No, I don’t wish to spend all day looking around for different European NAA notices, because many of us have already seen these notices that also include operators from outside of the EU. Also, I think that from your posting you are already aware of an NAA close to you where this is the case.


I believe Part.nco left M reg crew based in Europe requiring a EASA class or type rating? My M reg authorisation was restricted to the aircraft with the registration stated.

Your taking about a validation issued by Swedish authorities to be used for an aircraft based in Sweden. Totally different scenario
No, I’m not. I’m talking about SE-reg. aircraft. There is no requirement that the aircraft be based in Sweden.
and further it’s not one that is registration specific either.
So what?

I am getting annoyed with your style. You are talking down to everyone.

This has now degenerated to a “troll” level. Don’t feed trolls.

@Peter, while I agree that Hurricane appears to be working to an agenda he does not wish to share, I presume creating FUD to encourage more people to get EASA qualifications at his school, there is a noticeable bias on this forum towards “convenient registers” (such as N) and often unfair disparagement of EASA, and I sometimes wish that the debate was less prejudiced and more factual.

I know that EASA didn’t start well for GA, but they have made, and continue to make, great strides in our favour and it seems a shame that perseveration and, in some cases, name calling continue.

Well, yes, exactly. The agenda is obvious, the poster’s objective less so but one can guess (angry AOC holder, etc).

The Q, for a mod, is how far is this going to run. It reminds me of the thread c. 2014 about Mooney versus Cirrus. Eventually it reached 500 posts and ended with the Cirrus guy demanding free speech by repeatedly pressing Submit. That led to lots of trouble in subsequent years and hassle I had to deal with. Eventually he was removed.

I am all for good debates, otherwise. I am sure everyone knows that :)
