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:
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.
According to the Verordnung zur Prüfung von Luftfahrtgerät (LuftGerPV) the Regulation (EU) No 1321/2014 is also valid for aircraft still regulated by national law, so called annex-I aircraft. Therefore, also the differentiation between Part-M and Part-ML aircraft is valid for these aircraft.
For these aircraft the aircraft maintenance program (AMP) and all subsequent amendments thereto shall be, alternatively (see also ML.A.302(b)):
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)).
For these aircraft the aircraft maintenance program (AMP) and all subsequent amendments thereto shall be approved by the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt.
According to § 12 LuftGerPV, for annex-I aircraft, not used in commercial operations, the maintenance documents issued by the design approval holder are accepted as the aircraft maintenance program. In this case only deviations from these documents need to be approved by the LBA.
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 email@example.com.
Please note that communication with the LBA via email or fax is unencrypted. For reasons of data protection law, we therefore recommend that you use the post for inquiries that contain personal data.
