Case study 2: New general aviation task force
A new safety task force with a specific focus on general aviation was set up on 1 September 2011.
The task force was established in response to representations from industry about a range of issues, and driven by the particular interest of the Director of Aviation Safety, Mr John McCormick, to see that CASA sharpens its focus on those issues.
A key aim of the general aviation task force is to help ensure that the concerns of participants within the general aviation sector are fully considered in the review and development of the regulations affecting their activities.
A number of areas across pilot licensing and certification are being reviewed, ranging from potentially streamlining the licensing requirements for general aviation pilots to investigating whether instructors need to hold a commercial pilot’s licence.
CASA is putting considerable time and energy into this task force over the relatively short time it is intended to operate, and expects it will make an especially meaningful contribution to the achievement of positive results for the general aviation sector.
