– Continuing Airworthiness Management Requirements for Non-RPT Aircraft
The objectives of the reform of the continuing airworthiness suite of regulations include the devolution of responsibility to industry and transition to an organisational approval system where appropriate. Part 42 accordingly introduced a new organisation, known as a CAMO, which is responsible for continuing airworthiness management and may be authorised by CASA to provide the various continuing airworthiness management services. However, Part 42 is currently still in the transition period and its application is restricted to RPT aircraft.
CASA has commenced the next phase of the reform of the continuing airworthiness suite of regulations, part of which is to determine what the continuing airworthiness management requirements should be for non-RPT aircraft and what the roles of the CAMO, AOC holder and registered operator should be in fulfilling those requirements. This DP is the start of the consultation process for that reform.
