Moldovan aviation is still regulated according JARs. Our licenses do not have any restriction in the countries where JAR regulations are in effect, however, in order to fly EASA registered aircraft in the European Airspace on the basis of Moldovan licenses, these shall be validated or converted into Part-FCL licenses. On the other hand, according to the Common Aviation Area Agreement between Moldova and the European Union and its Member States signed in 2012, EASA Part-FCL licenses are automatically recognized by the CAA RM and their holders are freely allowed to fly ER registered airplanes, however it is still recommended to acknowledge the specifics of the national regulations, as in some aspects, they may differ from the ICAO and EASA procedures.


On any national or international VFR flight to/from or within Moldova (LUUU FIR) you are required to submit a flight plan.
Entering or leaving the Moldovan airspace is allowed only through identified reporting points (i.e. IFR waypoints).
All flight plans are to be filed to the Chisinau central AIS:

All around the country you will be within the reach of "Chisinau FIR" (if you fly VFR), on frequency 128.975 MHz. This station will provide you with Flight Information Service and will give you any information about activated military and restricted airspaces. While flying VFR at low altitude, you may lose contact with FIS station. In that case, continue to fly VFR according to your flight plan and wait for a contact later on. A contact must be made at least every 30 minutes. It is however advisable to contact the Approach or Tower frequency of any military unit whose airspace you will be transiting. Military airports usually have associated TMA's and you should contact the published frequency. Chisinau Approach also offers FIS service dedicated to Chisinau TMA area on frequency 133,3.


Our national airspace is divided in two classes :

Class C:
CTR LUKK GND-2500 feet
TMA LUKK 1500feet-FL095
CTR LUBM GND-3000 feet
Above Class G

Class G
GND-1499 feet within TMA LUKK
GND-4000 feet outside TMA LUKK

Transition Altitude is 4000 feet while the Transition Level is determined by the ATS, varying from FL50 to FL70.
Transponder mode C is mandatory for all flights in Class C airspace.


 For flying in Moldova you may use the Jeppesen Moldova AVIATION VFR Chart or any software such as Air Navigation Pro or other. DISCLAIMER: We strongly insist that these are NOT official charts for navigation and flight planning. ONLY official sources should be use for flight and flight planning (AIP Moldova and current NOTAMs) and it is clearly mentioned on the maps that 'For a safe and legal flight preparation, flight planning and for navigation through the flight, always consult the latest valid NOTAMs and the latest version of the AIP Moldova".
