Local Scenic Flights

Commission Regulation (EU) No 965/2012 will bring significant changes for commercial operators approved to perform local scenic flights, which are currently still subject to national law (§§ 102, 104 ff Austrian Aviation Act, LFG): After the expiry of the opt-out phase, hence as of 21 April 2017, the “Air Operations” Regulation will also be fully applicable to commercial scenic flights. They will then be referred to as “CAT A-A” Operations.
