Certificate Of Airworthiness/Export Certificate...

A Certificate of Airworthiness shall not be issued by the NCAA unless there is satisfactory evidence that the aircraft complies with the design aspects of the appropriate airworthiness requirements.

 A Certificate of Airworthiness for aircraft on Nigeria Civil Aircraft register shall be renewed or shall remain valid, subject to compliance with the system of inspection prescribed by the NCAA that requires periodical inspection at appropriate intervals having regard to lapse of time and type of service.

An exporter of an aircraft or an aeronautical product is normally required to obtain an export airworthiness approval from the Civil Aviation Authority of the State in which the aircraft is registered or in the case of a new aircraft or an aeronautical product, the State of Manufacture. The NCAA issues Export Certificate of Airworthiness to Aircraft and Engines.
