Flight operations regulations made into law
Six new flight operations regulations have been signed into law in a major milestone for civil aviation safety in Australia. Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR) Parts 91, 119, 121, 133, 135 and 138 consolidate the existing flight operations rules, deliver safety improvements and align with international best practice. The regulations do not commence until March 2021; this provides sufficient time for CASA and industry to prepare for commencement.
