New rules for sport and recreational aviation, ballooning and parachuting
New regulations have been made covering sport and recreational aviation, ballooning and parachuting. They largely consolidate existing requirements and will affect all participants as well as the sport aviation bodies that administer these activities. Regulations commence 25 March 2021. Read how the regulations were modified as a result of your feedback:
Darwin airport 2019 preliminary airspace review
This consultation follows the Preliminary Airspace Review of Darwin airport conducted last year. Visit the Consultation Hub before the 3 February 2020 deadline to have your say.
Spin avoidance and stall recovery training
We are seeking feedback on a draft advisory circular about spin avoidance and stall recovery training. Does it provide adequate guidance on conducting advanced stalling exercises - in particular stalls with a wing drop? Comment via the Consultation Hub by 27 January 2020.
Fatigue management for flight crew members
Guidance material is available to help operators understand and apply the fatigue rules (including Civil Aviation Advisory Publication 48.01 v3.1 – updated December 2019). Find our suite of resources on the CASA website.
Remote Pilot Licence (RePL) training
Guidance has been released for operators planning to deliver RePL training after 10 April 2020. This follows the introduction of the Part 101 Manual of Standards which defines the training course, syllabus and instructor qualifications as well as the training providers’ practices and procedures.
Approved Part 147 maintenance training organisations (MTOs)
An updated list has been published of MTOs approved to carry out aircraft maintenance training. There are lists for category and subcategory training as well as aircraft type training.
We clarify the responsibility of operators and maintenance personnel in complying with Airworthiness Directives and recording their compliance in the appropriate maintenance records.
