3.4 Acceptance of Documentation

3.4.1  An FTA SAS "Certificate of Authorization" issued by the DGAC of Mexico, the DGAC of Chile, or the FAA of the United States is required to obtain an FTA AOC.

3.4.2  These "Certificates of Authorization" issued by the State of the applicant are normally accepted as valid confirmation of technical competency.

NOTE:  Sightseeing Operations - Both TCCA and the DGACs require an air operating certificate and/or authorization to conduct sightseeing operations. The FAA requires all sightseeing operators to be certificated under FAR Part 135.

Under NAFTA, the FAA, prior to issuing its NAFTA authority, will require its operators to conduct sightseeing operations under FAR Part 135.
