Overflight Permits in the Philippines’ International Operations
Overflight permits are essential when conducting business aviation operations in the Philippines. While short-notice permits are occasionally granted for air ambulance operations, it’s recommended to request them with at least seven business days’ lead time for charter and private non-revenue flights. Note that overflight permits are mandatory for all types of flights. Moreover, you must provide a local business contact for all permit requests, except for tech stops. Ensure that your documentation includes certificates of airworthiness, pilot licenses, and medical certificates. Additionally, a color image of the aircraft and a certification letter stating the flight’s private non-revenue nature are required for private non-revenue permits. For charter permits, include the Air Operator’s Certificate and worldwide insurance documentation. These permits are typically valid for 72 hours, with revisions taking one to three days for processing.
Landing Permits in the Philippines' International Operations
Landing permits are a crucial aspect of business aviation operations in the Philippines. These permits are obligatory for both private non-revenue and charter flights, with a lead time of at least seven business days recommended for requests. An exception is made for air ambulance operations and some overflight permits, which may be considered on a case-by-case basis on short notice. To process landing permit requests, a local business contact is required, except for tech stops. Documentation for private non-revenue permits includes certificates of airworthiness, pilot licenses, and medical certificates for the crew, along with a color image of the aircraft and a letter of certification for private non-revenue status. Charter permits necessitate the same documents plus the Air Operator’s Certificate and worldwide insurance documentation. These permits typically remain valid for 72 hours, with revisions taking one to three days for processing. It’s essential to comply with these requirements to ensure smooth business aviation operations in the Philippines.
