Transferring or changing ownership of an aircraft
If a holder of a navigation authorisation ceases to be the operator of an aircraft covered by the approval, any navigation authorisation applicable to that aircraft automatically becomes invalid.
Step 1 – Notify CASA
The operator must notify CASA of the change by completing and submitting Notification of appointment/cancellation of registered operator form 32 (pdf 160.93 KB).
If you are an existing AOC holder, you must also complete Removal of aircraft / authorisations (AOC and navigational instruments) application form 853 (pdf 82.27 KB) to remove the aircraft from your AOC.
The Client Services Centre is available Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5:00pm AEST, to answer your questions and explain the application processes.
Note: The new registered operator must apply to CASA for their own separate navigation approvals. Refer to Applying for a Navigation Authorisation.
Step 2 – What happens next?
CASA will amend your Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC), cancel all the navigation authorisations associated with the aircraft taken off the AOC and notify Airservices Australia.
