Project MS 11/11 - CASA Direction to CAR 30 maintenance organisations regarding maintenance of the composite structure of aircraft

Project approved.

Closure Notes

The Amendment Instrument amends Civil Aviation Order 100.5 (CAO 100.5) by inserting in CAO 100.5 a maintenance direction, contained in subsection 7A, relating to the maintenance of certain composite structure aircraft listed in the direction.

The Amendment Instrument 2012 (No 1) was registered on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments on, 6 February 2012 (FRLI number F2012L00171) and comes into effect, 7 February 2012.

Issue

Under the new regime the Group 7 airframe licence for carrying out maintenance on some composite aircraft will no longer be utilised. Therefore, the current Group 20 system will be extended to all CAR 30 maintenance organisations and standardised with the future CASR Part 145 approved maintenance organisations.

Project Objective

Issuing of this CASA Instrument will direct CAR 30 maintenance organisations to only authorise a Part 66 licence holder to carry out composite repairs if the LAME is competent to carry out repairs. Certification by the LAME for the work of others who are competent to carry out the work will remain.

Status

This project was approved by Peter Boyd, EM Standards Development & Future Technology Division on 28 April 2011.
