Part 66 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2020 (No. 2)
Download print friendly version of instrument:
The Part 66 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2020 (No. 2) (the instrument) adds three new aircraft type ratings to the list of aircraft specified under the Part 66 Manual of Standards (the Part 66 MOS) as type rated aircraft.
As well the instrument replaces an aircraft type rating, with a series of aircraft type ratings for the aircraft type and adds new variants of the aircraft type. It also includes a few minor ‘editorial’ amendments to the 66 MOS.
CASA is making the Part 66 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2020 (No. 2) without complying with the consultation requirements in regulation 11.280 of CASR, for the following reasons:
- The addition of each new aircraft type rating is at the request of an aircraft operator or approved maintenance organisation, which has advised CASA of its intention to commence operations, or maintenance, of a relevant new aircraft type in Australia very soon. Accordingly, the operator or organisation has requested the addition of the new aircraft type rating as soon as possible, so as not to delay the operation, or maintenance, of the aircraft type.
- The amendments in the instrument to add new aircraft type ratings to the list of aircraft specified under the Part 66 MOS as type rated aircraft are covered by a determination made by the Director under paragraph 11.275 (1) (a) of CASR, on the basis that it is necessary to make the amendments as soon as practicable in the interests of aviation safety. Each new aircraft type rating is only relevant to an aircraft operator that intends to operate a relevant new aircraft type in Australia, or aircraft engineers employed by an approved maintenance organisation that intends to carry out maintenance in Australia on a relevant new aircraft type. Accordingly, broader consultation under regulation 11.280 on the amendments is not considered necessary by CASA.
If you wish to provide feedback on the amendments outlined above please email your comments to Michael.McGill@casa.gov.au by the 14 August 2020 deadline.
