What Is Category 1?

Thu Feb 23, 2006 5:40 am

What is Category 1? Is it a certificate? I have read an article which says that the airline of Cape Verde holds various certificates, including Category 1 of international regulations. This doesn't seem to make sense to me as I thought Category 1 was limited to the USA, and I didn't think it was a certificate either.

A Category 1 certification means that the countries airlines have met the requirements set forth by the FAA and are given a certificate by the US DOT to operate in the united states. If they were cat 2, they would not be allowed to operate here under certain circumstances.

I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem
