… will this be possible? Any examples, where A to B Passenger and freight transport is being done with an Annex2 Aircraft on an EASA AOC?
Thanks in advance,
Two seat Spitfire operation at Biggin?
Edit: Sorry, missed the A to B bit…
Are the Spitfire flights really on an AOC? If so, I wonder since when?
I think the Spitfires operate under the rules regarding “Introductory flights” within Part-NCO.
Some years ago, still within EASA, there was a Swedish helicopter company that also flew a DHC-2 Beaver for sightseeing flight and A to B under an AOC. But the had to get approval from the CAA on an almost month by month basis in order to do so. That made the whole operation impossible and very “volatile”. It is possible that this has changed today to the better though.
How do the Rapides at Duxford operate? Again, not A to B, but a possible start?
Similarly, I believe passengers are allowed on Sally B?
I think the engineer at Fenland who built G-AKRP from a pile of moth eaten scrap, (Well that’s what it looked like to me) would probably know about pleasure flights and relevant licensing for the old De Havillands?
It was amazing to see the thing come back to life and fly again, what amused me was that the two Gypsy engines cost roughly as much in oil as fuel to run!
