Efficient safety compliance
European safety regulations, have a specific impact on business aircraft registered outside, but with operators who are based within, Europe.
ORTAC is uniquely positioned on the independent, off-shore Channel Island of Jersey, whilst geographically sitting within Europe we are not regulated by it. Shifting your principal place of operation to this highly-respected, non-EU jurisdiction means that owners are able to enjoy substantial cost savings, by adhering solely to the precedent-setting International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) regulations. Other European-based operators must adhere to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) regulations and (where the aircraft is registered outside the EU) must also demonstrate compliance with additional ICAO legislation.
If you would like to know more about the implications of the relevant regulatory compliance pertinent to your operations, please contact us directly for confidential and tailored advice.
ORTAC provides a safety management system with an audit function to demonstrate compliance with ICAO Annexe 6 part II (as opposed to Part-NCC) for owners of non-EASA registered aircraft. By operating from an offshore operations base in Jersey we strive to ensure that your aircraft can be demonstrated as being fully compliant on a SAFA ramp check (this has been successfully demonstrated in a number of SAFA ramp checks over the past 12 months).
Our team is made up of Aviation Authority recognised industry specialists who have developed safety and operational management systems that demonstrate an acceptable means of compliance with ICAO Annexe 6 Part II – an alternative to EASA requirements for compliance with Part-NCC, constituting an Acceptable Method of Compliance. This provides a versatile and cost-effective way of operating within the EU, but with the benefits of attaching to an offshore operational base in Jersey.
ORTAC offers flexible and personalised operational solutions. This can be a complete package that includes all day-to-day flight and logistical planning, ongoing safety and holding of documentation, or a bespoke package with services tailored to meet an owner’s specific needs.
