We are considering using an ex US military helicopter in our counter poaching operations in the Central African Republic, while keeping it registered as a US aircraft with the US "N" number. We are not exporting it to sell and we will and we will maintain ownership and the US "N" number.
- What restrictions are there for taking an aircraft like this out of the US, if any?
I know of a good many former US military helicopters in private and commercial uses in some African countries. And I know that some ex US military helicopters are not "eligible" to export, and some are.
- What is the difference?
