– Maintenance of 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. Phase 1 of the reform continuing airworthiness suite of regulations accordingly introduced a new organisation, known as a Part 145 Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO), which is responsible for the provision of maintenance services in accordance with the requirements of Part 42, limited to the scope of the AMO's approval granted by CASA under the provisions of Part 145.
However, Part 42 (and hence Part 145) 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 maintenance performance requirements should be for non-RPT aircraft. This DP is the start of the consultation process for that reform.
