Regulatory wrap-up - June 2019
Have you missed the following updates published on our website last month?
Locating a flight training organisation made easy
Need flight training and don’t know where to go? We’ve made locating a flight training organisation easier with the release of a new a database to assist in your search. The database provides a list of CASA approved flight training organisations including their location and the expiry of their certification. View the database on the CASA website.
Preliminary Airspace Reviews for Darwin, Broome and Karratha
We conduct regular reviews of Australian-administered airspace. In June we asked for feedback on airspace in the vicinity of Darwin as well as Broome and Karratha via our Consultation Hub. Both consultations are now closed, and CASA’s Office of Airspace Regulation is currently reviewing the feedback.
Summary of consultation on proposed rules for larger aeroplane air transport
We have published the summary of consultation for the proposed amendments to the rules for larger aeroplanes air transport operations (Part 119 and 121 of CASR) on our Consultation Hub.
Summary of consultation for synthetic training devices
The summary of consultation to update the Part 60 MOS to directly reference the latest ICAO, FAA and EASA standards for synthetic training devices (flight simulators) is now available. See the Consultation Hub for more detail.
Updated advice on inflight fuel management
We have updated advice on the aviation fuel rules following feedback from the aviation community. It provides clearer advice on requirements for inflight fuel checking and recording. Read the new extracts from Civil Aviation Advisory Publication (CAAP) 234-1(2.1) and CAAP 215-1(3.1) Annex B Appendix B9 on the CASA website.
Changes to flight tests for certain pilot type ratings
An exemption (CASA EX41/19) that allows applicants for pilot type ratings – Swearingen SA226/227 and Embraer EMB120 types of aircraft – to complete part of their flight training and take a flight test in an aircraft, rather than a flight simulator, is available on the Federal Register of Legislation website.
