NPC 172/05 – Miscellaneous Amendments to Part 172 Manual of Standards (MOS) – Air Traffic Services
Several new air traffic procedures and systems have recently been introduced into the Australian aviation environment, which allow more efficient conduct of air traffic operations.
The Part 172 Manual of Standards (MOS) contains detailed requirements for the conduct of air traffic operations; this detail sometimes limits the ability to introduce new or innovative procedures and systems. Some of the recent changes were only possible because the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) granted exemptions against the existing standards in the Part 172 MOS. These exemptions were only granted after CASA assessed a safety case presented by the Air Traffic Services (ATS) provider and deemed the changes acceptable.
