What does CAMO mean?
What is the difference between CAMO and CAMO+?
Why a CAMO+ contract?
It relieves the aircraft owner of the paper work and file management, it speaks of supervised environment: operating times of the aircraft and their components, technical communications, airworthiness instructions, manual revisions, replacement of components and information about necessary maintenance work with any documents.
In the case of the CAMO +, due to the file situation, the certificate of airworthiness can be extended twice without the need for a physical aircraft inspection. Thus, a physical aircraft inspection is due only every three years.
Airworthiness … What does that mean?
In order to fly, your aircraft must be capable of flying. This means that it must be maintained as specified in its type certificate (certification of an aircraft model). The airworthiness certification of a particular aircraft is initially granted by an Airworthiness Certificate (OFAC) and is maintained by performing the required maintenance tasks. For this purpose, the maintenance work specified in your AMP (Maintenance Program) must be carried out. If the aircraft meets these conditions, it will receive an Airworthiness Certificate.
My plane is not registered in Switzerland. Can I still be tracked by your CAMO+?
What do I do if I want to sell my device during the contract?
First warn your CAMO+.
The new owner may want to continue the contract. In this case, the contract is simply changed
Aircraft Appendix 1 or Appendix 2?
Appendix 2 includes amateur aircraft (HB-Yxx), historical aircraft, aircraft previously under military approval (HB-Rxx), and so on. In fact, the criteria that determine which aircraft is in which attachment are complex and numerous. For example, some older Beech Bonanza models are classified in Appendix 2, although the type certificate is always followed by the manufacturer (Textron Aviation).
To find out in which of the two categories your aircraft is classified, it is best to visit the OFAC registration number website by entering the appropriate registration in the search box. Here you will find all the relevant information about this aircraft, including its “legal basis”: EASA or Annex II.
