- a participation in a noteworthy historical event; or
- a major step in the development of aviation; or

(c) aircraft of which at least 51 % is built by an amateur, or a non-profit making association of amateurs, for their own purposes and without any commercial objective;

(d) aircraft that have been in the service of military forces, unless the aircraft is of a type for which a design standard has been adopted by the Agency;

(vi) 315 kg for a land plane single-seater equipped with an airframe mounted total recovery parachute system; and, for aeroplanes, having the stall speed or the minimum steady flight speed in landing configuration not exceeding 35 knots

(f) single and two-seater gyroplanes with a maximum take off mass not exceeding 560 kg;

(g) gliders with a maximum empty mass, of no more than 80kg when single-seater or 100kg when two-seater, including those which are foot launched;

(h) replicas of aircraft meeting the criteria of (a) or (d) above, for which the structural design is similar to the original aircraft;
