How to apply for a change to a Part 141 or 142 authorisation
The information below outlines the steps a flight training organisation will need to take when applying for a change to a Part 141 or Part 142 authorisation.
Step 1 - Complete and submit an application form
Depending on the change required you will need to download and complete one or more of the forms listed below:
- If you are varying flight training activities listed on your Part 141 certificate, download Form 141-001.
- If you are varying flight training activities listed on your AOC, download Form 1214.
- If you are varying flight training activities listed on your Part 142 B2 Certificate, download Form 142-001.
- If you are nominating new key personnel, complete Form 395 and Form 4.
- For any other change not covered in the above forms, complete Form 395.
The revised exposition and/or operations manual reflecting the changes must also be submitted to CASA.
If you need assistance to complete your application more information is available in the form guidelines page. Send the completed forms and any supporting documentation with the application to the Permissions Issue team.
Step 2 - Review of your application
CASA will review the application and supporting documents you have provided to ensure it is complete.
If your application is incomplete and CASA requires further information, we will contact you and advise what additional information is required and the timeframe for submission.
Step 3 - Payment of costs and submission of supporting documents
Some changes will not require CASA assessment or a certificate to be re-issued. No costs will be incurred by the operator - CASA will simply acknowledge receipt of Form 395 and supporting documentation.
Other changes will require CASA assessment and an approval to be issued. In this case, CASA will send you a cost estimate to process the application. This estimate will cover assessment of your exposition or sample operations manual and supporting documentation, key personnel interviews and inspections of your facilities as well as the issue of a certificate or the acceptance of the change.
In addition, the estimate letter will provide details of any additional documentation that may be required to support your application. If you choose to proceed with your application, you will need to pay the amount stated in the estimate letter and submit your application along with the list of supporting documents to CASA.
The estimate is valid for 30 days from the date of the letter. If payment and supporting documents are not received by CASA within the 30 day period, the job may be closed and your application returned to you.
More information on the CASA fees and estimate process is available on the Fees section of the CASA website.
Step 4 - Assessment of your application
Assessment of your application will start once CASA has received your payment and supporting documents. The Permissions Issue team will then allocate your application to your local CASA regional office.
If the application package is incomplete, all or part of the package will be returned to you for correction or completion.
CASA may suspend the application process if an applicant does not provide the required information within reasonable timeframes. CASA may also cancel any applications that remain suspended / inactive for more than 90 days.
Step 5 - Detailed assessment
The detailed assessment involves two stages:
- Document Evaluation
- Inspections and Tests
Step 6 - Recommendation and approval
Once the assessment stage is completed, the certification process will commence at the relevant CASA regional office. The relevant regional office will prepare a recommendation for consideration by the CASA delegate.
CASA will contact you if the recommendation differs to what you have applied for or if your application is declined.
Step 7 - Certificate issue/CASA approval of change
Once your application has been approved, CASA will issue you with either a certificate or a letter of approval.
The Permissions Issue team will reconcile the actual hours against the estimated hours for the assessment. A refund or invoice will be processed if required.
The Permissions Issue team is available from 8:30am to 4:30pm (Australian Eastern Standard Time) Monday to Friday. If you have any questions please contact the Permissions Issue team on 131 757 or send an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
