The First UK Shark MS has now converted to a CAA CofA and ARC and is operating under the BGA CAMO. This is the culmination of years of work between HPH and EASA with help from the CZ CAA and in this case from the UK CAA. It also establishes a proven route to convert a Permit-operating HPH Shark onto a UK CofA. In practice, once certification was complete the conversion was straightforward and will be much easier going forward.
The Shark Jet uses the same airframe, so only a couple more tests and some paperwork will allow the Shark Jets to convert in the same way. 12 Months on, I hope to be converting the Shark Jets using this same process.
