Luftfahrt-Bundesamt

Approval of Aircraft Maintenance Programs

According to Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 the following regulations apply for the approval of maintenance programs:

Aircraft, which are not classified as complex motor-powered aircraft and which are not listed in an air operator certificate and fulfill the following conditions:

  • aeroplanes of 2730 kg maximum take-off mass or less,
  • rotorcraft of 1200 kg maximum take-off mass or less, certified for a maximum of up to 4 occupants, or
  • other ELA2-aircraft

are in the scope of application of Annex Vb “Part-ML” of the Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 (see also ML.1(a)).

All aircraft not covered by the above definition are in the scope of Annex I “Part-M” of the Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014.

Aircraft in the scope of Part-ML

For these aircraft the aircraft maintenance program (AMP) and all subsequent amendments thereto shall be, alternatively (see also ML.A.302(b)):

  • declared by the owner where the continuing airworthiness of the aircraft is not managed by a CAMO or CAO;
  • approved by the CAMO or CAO responsible for managing the continuing airworthiness of the aircraft.

Therefore the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt does not approve any AMPs for these aircraft and also does not accept any application for the approval of an AMP for these aircraft.
Already approved AMPs retain their validity. Possible amendments have to be implemented as part of the annual review of the AMP (see also ML.A.302(c)).

Aircraft in the scope of Part-M

For these aircraft the aircraft maintenance program (AMP) and all subsequent amendments thereto shall be approved by the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt.

CAMOs or CAOs approved by the LBA contact their point of contact at the department T5 or the LBA regional office responsible for your organization.

CAMOs or CAOs not approved by the LBA and owners of aircraft not having a CAMO/CAO contract send their applications to amp@lba.de.
