The department has been assigned the following core tasks:

  • Investigations of accidents and incidents in civil aviation
  • Issuing and recognizing licenses to operate aircraft
  • Approval of traffic rights
  • Approvals and recognition of approvals in the field of technical regulations
  • Supervision of compliance.

As part of the adapted exchange of notes between Switzerland and Liechtenstein concerning the cooperation of the Swiss and Liechtenstein authorities in the field of civil aviation, LGBl. 2003 No. 40 , and the administrative agreement between the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) and the AHT, LGBl. 2010 No 77, as well as the administrative agreement between the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (BFU) and the DZL (LGBl. 2003 No. 42), the administrative implementation is carried out in close cooperation with the FOCA and the Swiss Accident Investigation Board (SUST).
