You will need this certificate if you intend to operate an aerodrome. An aerodrome is an area of land or water, including any buildings, installations and equipment, used for the arrival, departure or movement of aircraft.
You will only need to apply for this certificate if the aerodrome has a runway suitable for use by an aircraft that has:
- a maximum passenger seating capacity of more than thirty
- a maximum carrying capacity of more than 3400 kilograms
- is available for use in regular public transport operations or charter operations.
The option for aerodrome certification is available to all aerodromes provided they meet the conditions of certification. Aerodromes that do not need an aerodrome certificate may still apply for registration. Aerodromes available for public use with a non-precision approach runway require registration or certification.
