Flight operations regulations
The flight operations regulations consolidate general operating and flight rules, and introduce new requirements for large and small aeroplanes, foreign operators and rotorcraft, as well as certification and management.
They form a part of CASA’s regulation reform program which is aimed at improving, strengthening and reinforcing aviation safety within Australia.
