Have you missed the following updates published on our website last month?
Flight Safety Australia back in print
CASA’s flagship aviation safety magazine, Flight Safety Australia, is now available as a print subscription. Order the new quarterly magazine for $39.95 via the CASA online store. Don’t miss out on the bumper first issue coming Spring 2019.
OnTrack website no longer available
Since OnTrack was originally introduced in 2010, there have been numerous advances in technology. We are seeking feedback from pilots and other interested parties to understand current and future pre-planning navigational needs around controlled airspace. Help us shape the future direction of OnTrack. Provide your feedback via the Consultation Hub by 30 September 2019.
In late July, legislation was passed to introduce a mandatory drone registration and accreditation scheme. The new rules come into effect from late 2019. Find out more on our website.
During the month we published the following summary of consultations:
- Defect reporting
- Amendments to CAOs 40.7 and 82.7
- Standards for helicopter devices used to conduct training in multi-crew cooperation
- Changes to air traffic control standards for parallel runway operations
We’ve updated advice on defect reporting. AC 20-06 v1.0 replaces CAAP 51-1(2), as the CAAP only referred to aircraft maintained under Part 4B of Civil Aviation Regulations (CAR). This AC covers aircraft maintained under both the CAR and Subdivision 42.D.6.2 of Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR). It also details defects which do not need to be reported to CASA.
