Every aircraft operator needs to obtain several flight permits before any flight (overflight permits and a landing permit). Overflight permits are necessary to enter, pass, and exit each country across your flight route. While landing permits are permissions to land in a particular airport at the destination country. The process of obtaining overflight and landing permits is complicated. Here comes iJET effective role in facilitating the process and securing flight permits on short notice due to its wide network of relations with the civil aviation authorities in almost every country around the world. iJET also helps aircraft operators to choose the flight route that imposes the minimum overflight fees, as most countries charge fees for processing overflight permits. Those fees are generally non-refundable. Overflight permit fees and landing permit fees are different from one country/airport to another. The required documents for applying to both overflight and landing permits also differ from one country to another. But generally, an aircraft operator is required to provide: the flight number, schedule and purpose of the flight, and aircraft airworthiness certificate, aircraft operator certificate, certificate of registration, insurance certificate, noise certificate, airworthiness review certificate.
