Export Certificate of Airworthiness

Prior to de-registration of an aircraft the DCA may issue an Export Certificate of Airworthiness, only if requested by the operator and only if required by the Importing State.


To issue an Export Certificate of Airworthiness the aircraft shall undergo an export airworthiness inspection by the DCA. An export certificate of airworthiness confirms that on the date the aircraft was inspected by DCA it was found to be airworthy and compliant with the relevant design requirements.


Should an export be required, the operator should submit INS. 4.009EX. Together with the application the contact information of the importing authority needs to be provided.
