By way of an amendment to the Datalink Regulation the European Commission exempted certain aircraft from the datalink requirements.

The exemption includes aircraft which have a certified maximum seating capacity of 19 passengers or less and a MTOM of 45359 Kg (100000 lbs) or less, with a first individual certificate of airworthiness issued before February 5, 2020.

HSP Schaefer advocates for further exemptions in close cooperation with the European Business Aviation Association (Bruxelles).
