Northeastern Aviation is proud to announce that it has been awarded one of the first European Aviation Safety Agency’s (EASA) Third Country Operator (TCO) Certificates.
EASA is looking to reduce the time consuming procedures of the past with this new approach and seeks to replace the confusion of individual country authorizations with a single document while, at the same time, maintaining the highest level of aviation safety in Europe. They are hopeful that it will speed up the permit application process for TCOs as well.
By the end of 2016, any operator who wishes to travel to the 28 member states of the European Union and 4 EFTA states (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland) must have been issued this Certificate or they will be banned from flying to the Union. Previously, operators had to apply for operating permits from each European country. Under the new rule, however, the EASA TCO approval is a single safety authorization valid in all EASA member states.
Receiving this certificate is a testament to the high safety and performance standards Northeastern Aviation continually achieves and the team at Northeastern Aviation is congratulated for their accomplishment.
