Addressee: Hellenic Civil Aviation Authority (H.C.A.A.)
Status: OPEN - Partially adequate
Recommendation: PREAMBLE: It has been observed to many ULAs, but not to the specific one, that they have been modified after the issue of the certificate of airworthiness. According to the existing regulatory framework of ULAs, the airworthiness certificate does not have expiration date and in case of modifications the interested person must make an application for the inspection of the ULA and the renewal of its airworthiness certificate.
SAFETY RECOMMENDATION 2018-03: The Civil Aviation Authority should examine the amendment of the ULAs regulation, so that the airworthiness certificate has specific time of validity and to establish a procedure of renewing the airworthiness certificate after its expiration.
