Operational limits on Jabiru-powered aircraft
In December 2014, working with Jabiru, Recreational Aviation Australia and the Sport Aircraft Association of Australia, we introduced some operational limitations in response to power-related problems involving engines manufactured by Jabiru Aircraft Pty Ltd (Jabiru). The limitations were imposed by a direction issued on 22 December 2014 (Instrument Number Casa 292/14), and reissued when they expired on 1 July 2015. They will stay in place until the problems have been identified and fixed.
The operational limitations imposed in December 2014 will continue to apply from 1 July 2015.
Changes to the direction as of 1 July 2015
As of 1 July 2015, the pilot-in-command of a Jabiru-powered aircraft can carry a passenger if the passenger signs a statement, not more than three calendar months before the flight. The timeframe was increased from the previous 28-day period to maintain safety, while reducing administrative burden. The statement is in a form described in the direction. All other terms and conditions of the direction remain the same.
The current direction can be found on the ComLaw Website.
