EASA continues to encourage consultation with the on-going development of VTOL Aircraft by inviting authorities, industry and stakeholders to take part again, this time related to a second publication of Means of Compliance (MoC), reports a press release.
EASA’s objective of this consultation is to provide “visibility on the content and on the range of flexibility which allows to address different architectures and design concepts for VTOL.”
After the completion of the first publication in May, this complementary set of proposed MOC should also “enable an equal treatment of all applicants, by establishing a level playing field and ensuring that a comparable level of safety in the compliance with the objectives of the Special Condition is achieved by all designs.”
It will allow the industry to gain “an early insight into EASA’s interpretation and expectations from the design objectives” of the Special Condition and also offer opportunities to seek clarification of the proposed MoC.
To take part in the consultation, please visit EASA’s ‘Special Condition for VTOL and Means of Compliance’ page, where the necessary documents reside. Closure of the commenting phase is on August 30th.
