The flight operations regulations have commenced.
To help support operators transition to the new rules, we created key operational changes guides. These include key changes to the rules and suggested text to help you update your manual or exposition.
About the key operational changes guides
The guides set out the changes to the rules that most affect the general flying rules and commercial operations.
These are operations covered by Parts 91, 119, 121, 133, 135 and 138 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASR).
The guides show:
- what changes commenced on 2 December 2021
- when other changes commence (known as deferred provisions)
- what you need to do under the new rules
- suggested text to update your operational documents.
Structure of the guides
There are several tables in the guides. The main table shows the changes that commenced on 2 December 2021. If you are not currently operating and have not transitioned to the new rules, you should focus your efforts on these changes.
Other tables in the guides show changes that are deferred. We have summarised these deferred changes at the top of the document for easy reference.
Many of the tables also included some suggested text for your operational documents. You do not have to follow this advice and should make sure that the suggested text is suitable for your operations.
Make sure you read the relevant advisory material relevant to your operations when updating your manual suite.
