Authorizations Needed To Operate A Flight

Tue Nov 18, 2003 8:21 am


Hi there,


I was wondering if anybody could give a word of explanation regarding all the authorizations needed to start operating a flight from point a to point b.

Traffic rights, slots, overflying rights, landing fees, handling fees, etc, ...

I have an idea about some of the above mentionned topics but not a full picture. How does it all work ? What items are missing ?

Can anyone help in this matter ?

Thanks for your usual coop,


Pat

Dear Pat -
xxx
Documents for the aircraft -
Registration certificate, airworthiness certificate, radio station licence, aircraft lease agreement, aircraft insurance certificate...
xxx
Documents for the flight -
ATC flight plan, overflight permits, traffic rights, landing permits (varies for scheduled or charter flights), handling agreements, airways and landing fee agreements (means for billing), fuel carnet or credit cards... charts and maps for route to be flown, and airports (departure, destination and alternate airports)... Also a computer flight plan or flight release form...
xxx
Documents for passengers or freight -
Passenger or cargo manifest, dangerous goods notification, weight & balance sheet...
xxx
Documents for crew -
Licences (sometimes passport or ICAO crewmember certificate) - crew visa if required by some countries...
xxx
I probably forgot some documents which are used by some airlines, and may be also the case that some documents listed above not always required...

Traffic rights are generally bilateral agreements, initiated by the airlines, but often governments have a word in them as well. You can have agreements by number of flights, or capacity... etc... These imply overflight and landing permits as well.

If non-scheduled, charter flights, often a request is made for specific flights, or series of flights. Overflight permits and technical stops (fuel) are generally easy to obtain for such flights, 24 hours before a flight, by SITA or email...
