The operation of a ferry flight applies to aircraft that are not managed by an Irish Air Operators Certificate (AOC), or a foreign delegated AOC, or for flights undertaken by large transport aircraft (exceeding 30,000 lbs (13,620 kgs) maximum total weight).

The IAA will process an application for the authorisation of ferry flights undertaken by large transport aircraft whilst placed in storage or for the purpose of delivery from the manufacturer. This procedure will also be applied for large transport aircraft that are being returned from an operator*, where the aircraft is not managed by an Irish AOC or a foreign delegated AOC, or for aircraft delivery flights to a new foreign operator prior to de-registration from the civil register and for acceptance, demonstration or post maintenance check flights.

Ferry flights must comply with all Flight Operations Department, Airworthiness Standards Department and Flight Crew Licensing requirements identified  on FOD.F. 224a Ferry Flight Application Form “Application Form for the Authorisation of Flights for All Large Aircraft when not managed by an (AOC) (INCLUDING FERRY FLIGHTS)”, which can be found at Flight Operations Department Application Forms.

Applications for a ferry flight must be submitted on this form and submitted to largeaircraftferry@iaa.ie for approval.
