General Aviation

It is the responsibility of the CAA to promote and oversee the safe operation of all aspects of General Aviation within the Kosovo and also for Kosovo registered aircraft and Kosovo licence holders wherever they may be engaged in an aviation activity.

To that end, the CAA is keen to bring to the attention of all general aviation participants within the community, the considerable amount of good quality guidance and advisory material that is available to assist in activities such as pre-flight planning, performance planning, use of navigational equipment and hazards associated with aviation.

Whenever a pilot or participant decides to use such guidance material they must be aware of the requirement to ensure that use of any such guidance or advisory material would allow them to continue to operate the aircraft or activity within the constraints of current Kosovo aviation legislation and, where appropriate, the provisions of the aviation legislation in force in the country within which they intend to operate.
