Notice of Final Change (NFC) MS 11/49 - Standardising Amendment of the CASR Parts 66 and 145 Manual of Standards
On the 5th December 2011 CASA announced that the re-issued EASA Part 66 rules (Parts 66 and 145 MOS equivalents) had granted Category A privileges to Category B2 licence holders on the basis that specific training requirements was satisfied by the Part 145 Approved Maintenance Organisation (AMO). As there was no current equivalent outcome for CASA Part 66 licence holders, CASA notified its intention to review the new EASA rules and draft an amendment to the Parts 66 and Part 145 MOS for consultation purposes. The review was to include EASA specifications for type training durations and Category A Privileges for B2 licence holders.
On 8 Mar 2012 CASA provided the Consultation Draft of the proposed amendments to Parts 66 and 145 MOS. The comment period closed Friday 13 April 2012. There were a total of seven written responses and three phone responses received in relation to the Project MS 11/49.
The feedback received by CASA was generally supportive with one respondent questioning the amount of training required to gain the category A privileges. CASA felt that given the requirement to hold a B2 licence; plus an aircraft type rating, plus appropriate type and task training, the proposal should proceed.
