N-Reg operators with EFVS flying in Europe

European Part-NCC operators are not permitted to continue the approach below 100′ above TDZE – after having seen the required items – using the EFVS.

They must use natural vision.

FAA Part 91 operators in the US are permitted to continue to use their enhanced vision – See AC 90-106A.

Also, Part-NCC operators require an Approval from their regulator.  Part 91 operators do not require from the FAA (except Part 91K)

From recently issued FAA AC 90-106A.

Most foreign CAAs require a specific approval to conduct EFVS operations. 

As a result, a foreign CAA may require a U.S. operator who wishes to conduct EFVS operations in their country to obtain an FAA-issued authorization. 

Part 91 operators (other than part 91K operators) are not required to obtain an LOA to conduct EFVS operations to 100 feet above the TDZE within the United States

A Part 91 operator conducting EFVS operations to 100 feet above the TDZE outside of the United States may request an LOA from the FAA.

The FAA strongly recommends that operators contact the CAA of each country in which they plan to conduct EFVS operations to determine the equipment requirements, operational approval requirements, and requirements for conducting EFVS operations, since those requirements may be different from those of the United States.

So, if you have an accident after having flown bellow “100′ above”, in visibility that would not have permitted it just using just your eyeballs, it is highly likely that your insurance will be invalid.
