Issue

Recently the procedures manual for issuing a Certificate of Airworthiness was amended to reflect the requirements of CASR 21.176. A Certificate of Airworthiness maybe issued subject to any conditions that CASA or the authorised person considers necessary in the interests of aviation. One of the conditions in the procedures manual requires that all State of Design ADs must be complied with prior to the issue of a Certificate of Airworthiness. This requirement is not clearly reflected in the current issue of Advisory Circulars AC 21-2(0) Standard Certificates of Airworthiness and AC 21-3(0) Special Certificates of Airworthiness - Overview.

Advisory Circulars 21-2(0) and 21-3(0) were issued in 1998 and have not been revised. Numerous changes to legislation since 1998 necessitate changes in these two ACs. Numerous editorial errors and other anomalies have also come to CASA's attention.

Project Objective

The objective of the project is to amend Advisory Circulars AC 21-2(0) and AC 21-3(0):

  1. to ensure the information provided accurately reflects CASA policy with regard to compliance with State of Design ADs prior to the issue of a Certificate of Airworthiness.
  2. to take account of changes to legislation since 1998
  3. to repair editorial errors and other anomalies

Also some minor amendments to AC 21-3(0) are required to reflect the introduction of Light Sport Aircraft as a category for Special Certificate of Airworthiness.
