General

201. As per state secretary decision dated 21 October 2013 (FMoD Org - Ref. 10 01 00) 3 , the

GMAA is directly subordinate to the FMoD. Administrative control over the GMAA is exercised by the Chief of Defense, whereas functional control of the GMAA will be provided by the competent organizational elements of the FMoD irrespective of the administrative chain of command. 4

202. In addition to Par. 201 above, the management on MoD level and functional supervision of

the GMAA will occur under the coordinating guidance of the Directorate-General for Forces Policy (FüSK) of the FMoD 5 when tasks and responsibilities of a national military aviation authority are concerned. As indicated in the letter by FMoD Organization, which was approved by the State Secretary on 28 March 2014 6 , this task of “coordinating guidance” has been assigned to the FüSK I 5 branch.

Legal Framework

301. As a matter of principle, all Bundeswehr flight operations must be performed in accordance

with the German Civil Aviation Act.

302. § 30, Par. 1 of the German Civil Aviation Act provides the possibility to deviate from the

regulations set in this act and the related implementing orders when required to fulfill special tasks of the Bundeswehr considering public safety and order. Deviations from the directives/regulations for operating in the airspace are permitted only as far as they are absolutely necessary for performing sovereign tasks.

303. EU regulations on civil aviation are not applicable for military air traffic (cf. Art. 1, Par. 2 of

Regulation (EC) No. 216/2008). Nevertheless, the EU member states are obliged to observe the objectives of Regulation (EC) No. 216/2008 during military flight operations as far as practicable. 7

401. This General Publication specifies the interrelationships between the FMOD, the GMAA and

all other entities involved in the performance of military flight operations.

402. It is the basic document for ensuring safe military flight operations and use of military airspace

in Germany. In this context, ensuring military flight operations implies the establishment and the support of airworthiness of aircraft as well as building and supporting the framework conditions and the

supporting environment required for the performance of safe flight operations.

403. With the establishment of the GMAA, the responsibility for a number of joint regulations,

which so far rested with the FMoD, has been handed over to the GMAA. A list of regulations concerned is provided in Annex 7.1.
