In which EASA country is an on condition Engine/Prop allowed?

No EU country can enforce it for NCO operation sub 2730kg.

…and also not for night VFR or IFR. Part-ML rules.

In Denmark we are still fighting to be able to use on condition airplanes for school flight, and importing an airplane to Danish register is simply not possible with an 12+ years old engine (even from another EASA country!).
We can shout all we want about EU and EASA but they just refuse.

The latest is a slight opening from CAA about flight training, but we are still decoding the conditions, and for commercial flight schools it is a plain NO.

Can you send me further details? I have been part of an EASA meeting about implementation experience of Part ML and it did not seem to me that any NAA was very reluctant to oppose EASAs stance on the TBO on any flight outside of an AOC (Basically on any Part-ML maintained aircraft).

If you have known issues with any CAA, I would be glad to collect the cases and advise AOPA about this.

Peter asked the status on my behalf.
The French regs change on this matter is from Feb 2020. Until then engines were limited to 120% TBO (as stated by Steve6443 above).
How much fighting went on until that change, I don’t know.
