CASR Part 105 - Parachuting from aircraft
Part 105 of CASR 1998 will prescribe the rules for sport parachuting from an aircraft. This will include:
- maintenance and certification of parachutes
- standards for personnel
- minimum maintenance for aircraft used for training and tandem parachute operations
- minimum standards for pilots involved in parachuting operations, in addition to the general pilot licensing requirements prescribed in Part 61
- specific aircraft operating rules that will be additional to the general operating rules of Part 91 or the sport aviation rules of Part 103
- the conduct of parachute descents.
Until Part 105 comes into effect, Regulation 152 of CAR 1988 requires that a parachute descent must comply with CASA's written specifications, which are currently issued directly to the relevant administering organisations.
The proposed Part 105 rules for certification and conduct of parachuting operations will be complemented by proposed Part 149 rules for organisations that administer sport aviation activities (including sport parachuting).
Who Part 105 affects
Part 105 affects:
- individuals and organisations involved in sport parachuting operations
- operators of aircraft used in sport parachuting operations
- users of common airspace.
Projects are opened to revise a CASR Part.
