Flight training organisations–transition
New rules for flight training organisations commenced on 1 September 2014. The rules are contained in Parts 141 and 142 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR).
Organisations that held CASA authorisations to conduct flight training activities immediately before 1 September are issued a Part 141 and/or Part 142 certificate which allows them to continue operating during the transition period.
Those who held an Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) authorising the equivalent of Part 142 flight training prior to 1 September 2014, can continue operating their approved training activities under their AOC and will not be issued a separate Part 142 certificate.
Holders of Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) and CASR 60.055 authorisations who were conducting flight training activities prior to 1 September 2014 will need to comply with the requirements of the new regulations by 31 August 2018 if they want to continue conducting these activities from 1 September 2018.
If you are a new entrant into the aviation industry after 1 September 2014 or an existing aviation operator wanting to commence flight training activities for the first time, please visit the New Flight Training Authorisations section.
If you want to continue conducting your current flight training activities after 31 August 2018 you need to obtain a new CASA authorisation.
