A FUTURE FOR HISTORIC AVIATION  
  
 
 
 
 

 
 
THE HOLLAND SITUATION, just as an example!! We would like to know about your situation..

Through a code of conduct, laid down in ‘Regulations Historical Aviation’, operators of historic aircraft have been given certain self-regulation rights under the supervision of the National Federation Historic Aviation (NFHL). Instrumental in this arrangement is a Quality Handbook. By joining the Federation our members commit to adhering to what is stated in the Quality Handbook. What is really great is that we can charge passengers a fee to cover the flights expenses. This is normally only allowed if you are a commercial operator.

The Handbook describes how certain aspects of the flight operation should be done, the underlying reason is FLIGHT SAFETY! In the book we describe passenger handling procedures, licensing requirements and the Federation keeps an eye on things through an audit program.

This "deregulation" is the result of negotiations between the Dutch Federation and the Government. Apart from a form of self governance there are also limitations. We are not to fly more than 200 hours per airplane per year (training flights excluded) and the historic jets stay in the hanger on Sundays unless we ask for permission. The 200 hour limit is there so we do not compete with commercial companies. Things we in Holland can live with. Weather you like this as well is open for discussion. We very much would like to hear your opinion!
