ASAP meeting outcomes and minutes – 20 June 2019
The Aviation Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) held its seventh meeting in Brisbane.
The main outcomes from the meeting were:
- ASAP membership: This was the final meeting for the departing panel members Rob Sharp, Caroline Wilkie and Greg Russell, and the first meeting for the three new panel members Adrianne Fleming OAM, Captain Roy Cronin and Dr Reece Clothier.
- Priority safety matter: The ASAP also discussed the emerging shortage of experienced and qualified pilots to hold training and checking roles within charter and low-capacity RPT operations. The panel discussed various policy approaches to resolve the matter.
- Part 61 – Flight crew licensing: The ASAP agreed to establish a TWG to work through matters raised by industry regarding CASR Part 61 – flight crew licensing.
- Fatigue rules: In noting the challenges in finalising the fatigue rules, the panel congratulated the work that CASA and industry had achieved through the TWG. With one outstanding matter to resolve, it was the view of the panel that advice would be provided to the DAS shortly after the meeting.
- Other projects: The ASAP sought the Part 43 and Part 138 TWGs to meet again to assist in finalising their advice to the panel.
- Flying operations regulations: An update on the implementation process for the flight operations regulations was provided by CASA to the ASAP. Selected industry members will be engaged in the future to road-test and provide feedback on implementation materials.
- TWG Expression of Interest: The panel requested that CASA send out additional communications to industry to inform them of the TWG Expression of Interest Register. Individuals can register via CASA’s Consultation Hub.
