Continuing Airworthiness Management by a NAC working under the Quality System of accepted CAMOs

For aircraft operated under CAR OPS 2A/H or CAR OPS 4, the owner/operator of an aircraft, for which continuing airworthiness is managed by a SM CAA accepted continuing airworthiness management organisation (CAMO), shall still appoint a Nominated Airworthiness Coordinator (NAC) directly employed by the accepted CAMO.

Form SM 64A must be used during the initial CofA process in order to nominate the NAC, to which a CV, certificates, licences, etc. must be attached for acceptance. A change to the NAC must be notified to the CAA in advance using form SM 64, enclosing a CV, certificates, licences, etc. for acceptance by the CAA.

If a NAC is working under the Quality System of an accepted CAMO as defined in CAP 02 Section 21.1, the aircraft may qualify for a Certificate of Airworthiness (CofA) valid for a period of 24 months instead of a standard 12 months CofA validity, but apart from that, all other responsibilities and processes are the same as explained above for a NAC.

This requires that the owner or operator to have contracted arrangements for continuing airworthiness management with a CAMO that holds an approval by the following NAAs with a minimum duration of 12 months and the national approval has within the Scope of Work an equivalent type of aircraft, acceptable to the CAA:

(a) EASA Part M Subpart G / Part CAMO, as approved by an EASA Member State
(b) CAR M Subpart G, as approved by the UAE GCAA
(c) CAR OPS 1 or CAR OPS 3 Maintenance System Approval, as approved by the San Marino CAA
(d) OTAR Part 39 Subpart E Continuing Airworthiness Management as approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI)
(e) OTAR Part 39 Subpart E Continuing Airworthiness Management as approved by the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority (BCAA)
(f) UK CAA Part M Subpart G / Part CAMO, as approved by the UK CAA

A contract is required for the arrangement between the owner/operator with an accepted CAMO, except when the owner/operator has an in-house acceptable CAMO. A template for the contract required, can be found as an Appendix to Information Circular No. 5, citing the obligations of the owner/operator and CAMO.

For further details on the arrangements for continuing airworthiness management with an accepted CAMO, please refer to CAP 02 Section 21.1.
