Advice for aviation operators
Since early January we have been closely tracking the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the effects it is having.
In light of the most recent developments, I want to offer my support to you and your organisation, as you too come to grips with this unprecedented challenge.
COVID-19 is expected to continue to disrupt business and flying operations for some time. It will also impact many of your staff in some way.
I want to assure you that all of us at CASA are actively monitoring the situation in respect of the broader impacts on aviation safety.
It is clear that during the next few months we will need to be flexible in the regulatory approach we take in order to support you. For that reason I urge you to review your permissions, authorisations, or authorised person details as soon as possible and reach out to your regional office directly to discuss any changes you may require. This will enable us to anticipate and effectively manage those requirements.
You can expect the regional managers will respond by seeking information on the safety impacts of the proposed changes and measures you have in mind to mitigate any risks.
We will work as closely as possible with you during this time to ensure aviation safety is maintained.
Chief Executive Officer and Director of Aviation Safety
