CD for Part 129 of CASR 1998
Consultation Draft for Part 129 of CASR 1998 – Foreign air transport operators – certification and operating requirements
CASR Part 129 is a new set of Regulations, developed to complement CASR Part 119. The Part will specify the AOC issue process and, in a consolidated form, all of the operating, airworthiness and maintenance requirements that Part 129 operators must comply with, supplementary to the Act, in order to be considered for the granting of a Part 129 foreign air transport operator AOC.
A Part 119 AOC will be required for domestic operations within Australia that are conducted by foreign operators (i.e. those operations currently known as ‘regulated domestic flights’) and for international operations conducted by Australian operators. A Part 129 AOC will be required by foreign operators wishing to operate air transport flights into and/or out of Australia, or within Australia as part of an international flight.
Parts 129 and 119 are intended, between them, to capture all circumstances where an Australian AOC for passenger or cargo transport operations is required. It should be noted, however, that Part 129 does not apply to aircraft registered in New Zealand operating in Australia under the privileges of an ANZA AOC. Nor does Part 129 apply to Australian air transport operators.
