- Regulatory requirements for domestic cargo-only operations in small aircraft
This NPRM is issued by CASA with a view to ensuring that Australian aviation safety requirements are current and appropriately address safety risks. CASA’s policies require that the aviation safety regulations must:
- be necessary to address known or likely safety risks
- provide for the most efficient allocation of Industry and CASA resources
- be clear and concise
- where appropriate, be aligned with international standards and drafted in outcome based terms.
The proposed Part 91 of CASR 1998 would establish the general operating and flight rules that would apply to flights in Australia, and would apply in conjunction with one or more other proposed CASR Parts which would apply to the transport of passengers and/or cargo by an air transport operator. For example:
- the proposed Part 119 of CASR 1998 would address overarching operator certification and management requirements for Australian air transport operators
- the proposed Part 135 of CASR 1998 would address the operational standards requirements for Australian air transport operations in small aeroplanes
- the proposed Part 133 of CASR 1998 would address the operational standards requirements for Australian air transport operations in rotorcraft.
This amendment to the proposed Part 119 of CASR 1998 being proposed in this NPRM would introduce a system of operator notification in place of the requirement to hold an Air Operator's Certificate (AOC) for domestic cargo-only operations in small aircraft.
