1112. Certification requirements for EASA and non-EASA aircraft.

Both the Civil Aviation Authority '(CAA')1 and the European Aviation Safety Agency ('EASA')2 have functions concerned with the certification3 of aircraft. The requirements for certification differ depending on whether an aircraft is an EASA aircraft4 or a non-EASA aircraft5. Both EASA and the CAA issue certificates of airworthiness, and permits to fly. EASA issues certificates of airworthiness and permits to fly for EASA aircraft and the CAA does so for non-EASA aircraft.
