Key proposals - development of Part 66
CASR Part 66 is intended to be equivalent to the EASA Part 66 and includes:
- adoption of the EASA licence ratings
- a licensing system divided into four categories.
- four sub-categories which are applicable to the A and B1 licences as follows: A1 and B1.1 = fixed wing aeroplane with turbine engines:
- A2 and B1.2 = fixed wing aeroplane with piston engine
- A3 and B1.3 = helicopter with turbine engine
- A4 and B1.4 = helicopter with piston engine
- perpetual maintenance licences
- competency-based training as the Australian method of qualifying for initial issue of a Part 66 licence
- industry experience times are reduced to balance the output of competency-based training
- type training including both theory and practical elements
- aeroplanes below 5,700 kg and single-engine helicopters can be covered by a 'B1' or 'B2' licence within the scope of the licence held and normally without further rating requirements.
