New flight training approval
CASA approval is required to conduct flight training activities that lead to the issue of flight crew licences, ratings or endorsements.
The type of approval and the rules that apply depend on what training activities are to be conducted, what flight crew licences, ratings or endorsements will be issued and whether the training will be conducted in an aircraft, a flight simulation training device or both.
The rules are contained in Parts 141 and 142 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations.
