Guidance On Changes To Manx Aviation Legislation

by Jason Gorringe,, London

26 November 2015

The Isle of Man Aircraft Registry on October 30, 2015, released new guidance covering changes to the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO's) International Standards and Recommended Practices (SARPs).

The changes will mainly affect operators of large and turbojet aeroplanes with a maximum certified take-off mass exceeding 5,700 kg; one or more turbojet engines; or a seating configuration of more than 9 passenger seats. Operators of other aircraft will still be affected by a small number of the changes to the legislation.

As a result of the change to the ICAO's SARPs, all of the signatory States to the Convention on International Civil Aviation (currently 192) have to amend their legislation, including the Isle of Man.

The Air Navigation (Isle of Man) Order 2015 is being amended to incorporate these new requirements and will be published in the form of the Air Navigation (Isle of Man) (Amendment) Order 2016, which is intended to come into force on May 1, 2016. The main changes to the legislation will require a more structured and auditable approach to the operation of large and turbojet aeroplanes, being larger and more complex, namely requiring the preparation of a minimum equipment list; a maintenance control manual; and a company operations manual.
