Regulatory wrap-up - September 2019
Have you missed the following updates published on our website last month?
Aerodrome manual of standards released
The manual of standards for Part 139 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations sets out safety standards for a wide range of technical matters relating to the physical construction and maintenance of certified aerodromes. The manual has been updated to reflect changes in the aerodromes sector, technology and best practice. It takes effect on 22 August 2020, with a two-year transition period.
Pilot Certificates (Sport Aviation Bodies) Direction
This new instrument requires pilots who have had their licence cancelled, suspended or varied by CASA to notify any Sport Aviation Body (SAB) from which they hold (or intend to hold) a pilot certificate. The SAB is then obliged to suspend a pilot certificate unless CASA has provided written approval. The content of the instrument has been drafted to closely align with legislation that currently exists under Civil Aviation Safety Regulation (CASR) Part 149.
Simulator standards updated for multi-crew helicopter training
The legislative instrument prescribes the qualification standards for flight simulation training devices that are to be used in multi-crew cooperation training for helicopters. This is the flight training that is required for a person to conduct a flight in a helicopter as a multi-crew operation, or to qualify for an air transport pilot licence with a helicopter category rating.
Consultation is currently open on proposed enhancements to protection and use of safety information. We are seeking feedback until 22 October 2019.
We published one advisory circular this month for approved Part 147 training organisations.
