Functional Check Flight Symposium
  • ANAC current situation
    • There is no definition in the Brazilian current regulation concerned to “Functional Check Flight” as it is characterized in this Symposium
    • Only the “operational check” is required as per part 91.407 requirement

  • ANAC current situation
    • RBHA 91.407:
  • b) No person may carry any person (other than crewmembers) in an aircraft that has been maintained, rebuilt, or altered in a manner that may have appreciably changed its flight characteristics or substantially affected its operation in flight until an appropriately rated pilot with at least a private pilot certificate flies the aircraft, makes an operational check of the maintenance performed or alteration made, and logs the flight in the aircraft records.
  • (c) The aircraft does not have to be flown as required by paragraph (b) of this section if, prior to flight, ground tests, inspection, or both show conclusively that the maintenance, preventive maintenance, rebuilding, or alteration has not appreciably changed the flight characteristics or substantially affected the flight operation of the aircraft.

  • ANAC suggestions for future regulation
      • A clear definition about what is “Functional Check Flight” shall be included in part 91 scope, as well as its employment;
      • Specific procedures shall be detailed in the Operational Manual of part 121 and 135 operators (121.135 and 135.21 – Manual contents);
      • Adequate orientation shall be given for such kind of flights to part 91 operators;
