BASA Implementation Issues

 MAG supplement not ready


Although deadline has been extended from 01 Aug 2011 to 01 Jan 2012 (3

months transition extended to 7 months), presented during roadshows in the

U.S. and published on EASA website

Renewal date determines when you need to be ready, in any case not later

than 31 Dec 2012

 Renewal deadlines not met:

Huge number of requests for extension received.

REMEMBER: Renewal package has to be sent 90 days in advance

 8900 Order used as excuse for delay:

FAA HQ clearly communicated that renewals shall be performed based on

MAG guidance. No need to wait revision of 8900.
