(4) 24 months for aerial work aircraft operating under CAR OPS 2, or
(5) 24 months for an aircraft operating under CAR OPS 2 Part II
(6) 24 months for an aircraft operating under CAR OPS 4

An application for the initial issue of a certificate of airworthiness for an aircraft registered in San Marino can be made using FORM SM 02.

The CAP 08 | Certificate of Airworthiness is a guide for the person or organisation who will be presenting an aircraft and its associated records to a CAA SMR airworthiness inspector.

The person presenting the aircraft and its records would normally be the operator’s Airworthiness Coordinator or Maintenance Postholder in the case of aircraft operated commercially, unless different arrangements are agreed on an individual basis in advance with the CAA SMR. This person is responsible, prior to the aircraft inspection, for ensuring that the aircraft and its associated records are available for inspection and meet CAA SMR standards and requirements.

The CAR 21 | Certification of Aircraft Subpart H details the requirements governing the airworthiness certification of an aircraft.
