Flight training transition success
Date of publication:
5 September 2018
There are now 242 flight crew training operators with approvals under the licensing suite of Civil Aviation Safety Regulations.
These operators hold Civil Aviation Safety Regulation Part 141 or 142 approvals.
The four year transition period to the new licensing and training regulations was completed on 31 August 2018.
A total of 235 existing flight crew training operators transitioned to the new Part 141 and 142 approvals.
Another 39 new training organisations joined the list of approved operators.
A further 10 training operators are yet to complete the transition to the new regulations and CASA is working with them to finalise the process as quickly as possible.
CASA's acting CEO and Director of Aviation Safety, Graeme Crawford, said the flight crew training transition was an important achievement for the aviation community and CASA.
"This was considerable body of work and I would like to thank the flight training operators for their efforts in meeting the transition deadline," Mr Crawford said.
"I appreciate this work was on top of day-to-day business and required an extra commitment.
"CASA provided a package of support to assist operators to make a successful transition.
"This support included training syllabi, sample manuals and expositions. The Manual Authoring and Assessment Tool helped to minimise the administration of the approval process, reducing the burden on the aviation community.
"I would like to thank CASA’s staff who worked hard to support flight training organisations through the transition."
