According to the terms of the EU-US Bilateral Agreement (BASA) (see here), you can only import an engine with the status “rebuilt” in Block 11 if it has been released by the original engine manufacturer on a Form 8130-3 using units 13a to 13e. (left). A bilateral aviation safety agreement (BASA), a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) or a working agreement (VA) and related implementation procedures provide for technical cooperation between national civil aviation authorities. They help to reduce duplication and aim at the mutual recognition of certificates. In addition to airworthiness certification, BASAs, moUs and WAs provide for bilateral cooperation in other aviation sectors, including maintenance, flight operations and environmental certification. These agreements will ensure the continuity of agreements with the United States, Canada, Brazil and Japan when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. In addition to airworthiness certification, bilateral aviation safety agreements provide for bilateral cooperation in a wide range of aviation sectors, including maintenance, flight operations and environmental certification. For aircraft certification, an additional document, an implementation procedure for airworthiness, will be developed to address certain areas such as design authorizations, production activities, aviation export authorizations, post-design authorization activities and technical cooperation. The second new BASA Annex on Flight Simulation Equipment will allow for the mutual acceptance of compliance knowledge and documentation of the recurrent assessment and qualification of Full Flight simulators established in the EU and the US. It will save resources, including through the elimination of double assessments by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In the aviation sector too, costs will fall: operators of flight simulation aircraft will no longer be reassessed repeatedly and these savings can be passed on to airlines that send pilots for training.
