Certificate of Airworthiness

A certificate of airworthiness for an Aruban aircraft is issued on request of its owner or operator after the airworthiness inspection is conducted satisfactorily. 

 

The Certificate of Airworthiness (C of A) in Aruba is valid for a maximum period of twelve (12) months from the date of issue, for aircraft operating in accordance with either AUA-OPS 1 or 2.

 

To proceed with the initial issue of a certificate of airworthiness for an aircraft operating in Aruba, please complete and submit form INS-4.009.

 

The AMC-012 can be used as guide for the person or organization who will be presenting the aircraft and its associated records to a DCA airworthiness inspector.

 

The person presenting the aircraft and its records would normally be the operator’s Airworthiness Coordinator or Maintenance Post holder. In the case of aircraft operated commercially, unless different arrangements are agreed on an individual basis in advance with the DCA. This person is responsible, prior to the aircraft inspection, for ensuring that the aircraft and its associated records are available for inspection and meet the DCA’s standards and requirements.

 

The AUA-RLW details the requirements governing the airworthiness certification of an aircraft.
