Full project title

Provision of a CAR 30/CASR Part 145 Training and Authorisation system for aircraft of a type manufactured in accordance with the requirements of , and accepted for use by, an armed force - ie a warbird; whether issued a special certificate of airworthiness for an aircraft in the limited category or an experimental certificate. Weight cut-in to be determined during consultation.

Note: Refer to Project MS 13/07 for supporting advisory publication - CAAP 104-1(0) - Maintenance of Warbirds, Historic and Replica Aircraft.

History

22 January 2013

In response to industry feedback CASA has redrafted the proposed Amendments to CAO 104.0 - Certificates of Approval and the associated Direction - warbird maintenance by certificate of approval holders and their employees.

The previously consulted drafts of the CAO amendment and Direction instrument used (in part) the term large aircraft as the discriminator which would decide applicable aircraft (affected aircraft would be maintained by those Part 66 licence holders who had received additional training and authorisations by the CAR30).

The new drafts expand the aircraft application to include historic and replica aircraft and specifically lists relevant applicable and non-applicable aircraft/engines. The listing takes into consideration the fact that although an aircraft may be large it is not necessarily complex and thus requiring additional training to that required by the holder of a relevant Part 66 licence.

Issue

CASA sports aviation is concerned that the larger warbirds (not type rated under Part 66 of the CASR) do not have a specific training requirement associated with the exercise of aircraft engineer licence privilege. The aircraft systems are considered to be sufficiently different from those taught during category training to generate a requirement for training and authorisation before Part 66 licence privilege can be exercised on the larger warbirds. CASA also believes that large warbirds should be only maintained with an aircraft maintenance organisation under Part 145 of the CASR or regulation 30 of the CARs (Approved Aircraft Maintenance Organisations - AAMO)

Project objective

The objectives of this project are:

  • To create a training and authorisation system for large warbirds for use in either a CAR 30 or Part 145 AMMO
  • To direct that large warbirds only be maintained by an AAMO (no maintenance by an independent LAME)
  • To provide access to the Permitted Training regime as the basis for training and authorisation for the affected warbirds to an AAMO.

The project may require the amendment of CAO 104.0, Part 66 and 145 MOS and may use CASA's maintenance direction power under the regulation 38 of the CAR 1998

Rules affected

Part 145 MOS, 66 MOS and CAO 104.0
