NMAI Check Pilots

It is NMAI policy that each aircraft undergoes a Check Flight prior to initial Flight Permit issue and at 3 year intervals thereafter. The purpose of the Check Flight is to assess the performance of the aircraft and identify any deterioration from Check Flight to Check Flight. The Check Flight is currently being used as the 3 year Flight Permit is being phased in, to decide whether an aircraft applies for a 3 year or 1 year Flight Permit.

The check flight maybe carried out by the aircraft owner or any suitably qualified pilot appointed by the aircraft owner. If you’re not comfortable check flying your own aircraft, we have included a list of check pilots below who previously carried out check flights on behalf of the association. If you have any further queries about the check flying procedure, please refer to the NMAI National Maintenance Organisation Manual or contact the Tech Office.
