NFRM 0313CS titled Airworthiness requirements for Light Sport Aircraft has been published.
This Regulation covers the certification of a new category of aircraft called Light Sport Aircraft (LSA). The LSA category will generally include aircraft used for aviation sport and recreational activities, such as ultra- light airplanes, gliders, balloons, powered parachutes, weight-shift control aircraft and gyroplanes. The proposed legislative requirements, which are simply an amendment of the existing CASR Subpart 21.H and several consequential amendments to the Civil Aviation Orders, continue the approach taken in CASR Part 21 whereby Australia's aircraft airworthiness requirements are generally harmonised with those of the USA Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs). The amendment to Subpart 21.H will incorporate the existing airworthiness acceptance criteria for aircraft potentially eligible for the LSA category contained in the current Civil Aviation Order (CAO) Part 95 exemption series, and in CASR 1998 Part 21 - Certification and Airworthiness Requirements for Aircraft and Parts or Part 200 - Exemptions.
