  19. 19. Maintenance rules for PtF <ul><li>According to 2042/2003 art. 3.3 aircraft under PtF are exempted from Part M </li></ul><ul><li>In stead: maintenance rules are defined in the flight conditions </li></ul><ul><li>In most cases they can refer to Part M </li></ul>
  20. 20. Separate Subpart P <ul><li>Initial drafts were amendments to Subpart H (airworthiness certificates) </li></ul><ul><li>Due to complexity decided to create new subpart </li></ul><ul><li>As a consequence all references to PtF are deleted from subpart H </li></ul>
