CASR Part 60 - Synthetic training devices
Part 60 of CASR 1998 was developed to update, consolidate and replace rules found in Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 45.0, and documents, FSD-1 and FSD-2, that previously defined requirements for flight simulators, flight training devices and other synthetic trainers that may be used by a person to gain aeronautical experience. The collective term for these devices is Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTDs).
Subpart 60B of Part 60 currently prescribes the rules for the initial and recurrent qualification and use of Flight Simulators and Flight Training Devices. Part 60C: Basic instrument flight trainers, is reserved for future use.
The rules for Approved Synthetic Trainers are currently covered by CAO 45.0.
