As most private jet aircraft owners and operators are already aware, as from August 2016 significant changes are mandated for those private jet operators based in Europe. These changes are as a direct result of the implementation of EASA Air Operations Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 (or Part-NCC) which applies to all non-commercial flights in “complex” motor-powered aircraft. So from 25 August 2016 private jet operators will have to adhere to very similar requirements as required under an Air Operators’ Certificate by all commercial air transport operators. Fortunately for those owners and operators who do not have time to spend writing an operations manual, Av8jet Ltd have been working for some time on NCC solution for private owners and operators in advance of the implementation of these regulations. Called Av8sms, it consists of four specialist tools.
