Changes at Aircraft Operator


After the initial certification or declaration of flight operations according to Part NCC/SPO, all changes in the form of amendments, additions or deletions, in particular in the area of fleet, personnel, operating policies, processes and procedures or documentation, are referred to as a change.

The following documents shall assist all operators operating according Part CAT, NCC, SPO and NCO in the process to conduct changes with FOCA.

Note: The new FOCA Form 330 – Changes at Aircraft Operator includes the valid EASA requirements (incl. new AWO/fuel scheme) and will be updated in case of changes in the regulations.

For those operators still operating under EASA exemption Art. 71(1) according to the regulations officially valid until 29.10.2022, the new form will apply starting with the application for approval of the new regulation requirements. Until then, the old Form 44.20 still applies to these operators in the event of changes.
