flying for the purpose of experimenting with or testing the aircraft including its engines and equipment;
flying for the purpose of qualifying for the issue, renewal or validation of certificate of airworthiness or restricted certificate of airworthiness and the approval of a modification of the aircraft;
delivering or exporting the aircraft;
evacuating aircraft from areas of impending danger; and
operating at mass in excess of the aircraft's maximum certified takeoff mass for flight beyond normal range over water or land areas where adequate landing facilities or appropriate fuel are unavailable with the excess mass limited to additional fuel, fuel-carrying facilities, and navigation equipment necessary for the flight.

Documents to Use
Application For Special Flight Permit Form http://www.kcaa.or.ke/index.php/airworthiness-2/478-ac-aws004-special-flight-permit-application-form/file

Instructions
For an aircraft that would otherwise qualify for a Certificate of Airworthiness (C of A) but is unable to meet the applicable airworthiness requirements (i.e. C of A is not in force), a Special Flight Permit may be issued by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority in accordance with the Civil Aviation (Airworthiness) Regulations. Such Permit will have a limited validity period depending on the circumstances under which it is issued.

An application in the form of a letter for a Special Flight Permit should be submitted to the Authority at least ten (10) working days before the date of the intended flight.

An applicant for a special flight permit should show that the aircraft is properly registered and marked and has identification plates affixed to the aircraft.

The operator shall inform the State on the conditions of the aircraft and intended flight and the operator must obtain their consent.

The Authority shall require a properly executed maintenance endorsement statement in the aircraft permanent record by an authorised person stating that the subject aircraft has been inspected and found to be safe for the intended flight.

Required Information
Details of aircraft owner
Details of the aircraft
Details of proposed flight
Details of crew required to operate the aircraft
Details of non-compliance with applicable airworthiness requirements
Any restriction the applicant considers necessary for safe operation of the aircraft
Any other information relevant for the purpose of prescribing operating limitations.

Need for the Document
A person should not fly an aircraft unless there is in force in respect of that aircraft a certificate of airworthiness or restricted certificate of airworthiness or a special flight permit duly issued or rendered valid under the law of the State of Registry and any conditions subject to which the certificate was issued or rendered valid are complied with. The Authority may issue a special flight permit for an aircraft that is capable of safe flight but unable to meet applicable airworthiness requirements for the purpose of:

flying to a base where weighing, painting, repairs, modifications, maintenance, or inspections are to be performed or to a point of storage;
flying for the purpose of experimenting with or testing the aircraft including its engines and equipment;
flying for the purpose of qualifying for the issue, renewal or validation of certificate of airworthiness or restricted certificate of airworthiness and the approval of a modification of the aircraft;
delivering or exporting the aircraft;
evacuating aircraft from areas of impending danger; and
operating at mass in excess of the aircraft's maximum certified takeoff mass for flight beyond normal range over water or land areas where adequate landing facilities or appropriate fuel are unavailable with the excess mass limited to additional fuel, fuel-carrying facilities, and navigation equipment necessary for the flight.

Information which might help
Since a Special Flight Permit is issued to cover operation of an aircraft which may not meet airworthiness standards, the KCAA will require the applicant to make appropriate inspections or tests, for the purpose of determining and prescribing appropriate operating limitations.

Others
Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) was established on 24th October 2002 by the Civil Aviation (Amendment) Act, 2002 with the primary functions towards
