Project AS 08/05 - CASR Part 175 - Aeronautical information management
Project closed 6 February 2015.
Civil Aviation Legislation Amendment (Part 175) Regulation 2014 was registered on the Federal Register of Instruments on 23 September 2014 and commences on 5 March 2015. The project objectives have now been met.
The role and importance of aeronautical information and aeronautical data changed significantly with the implementation of area navigation (RNAV), required navigation performance (RNP), airborne computer based navigation systems and data link systems. Corrupt or erroneous aeronautical information and aeronautical data can potentially affect the safety of air navigation.
ICAO requires Contracting States to the Chicago Convention to provide an Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) which publishes aeronautical data and aeronautical information in the Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP). CAR 233 (1)(h) requires pilots to carry aeronautical maps, charts, aeronautical information and instructions published in the AIP relevant to the route being flown and any alternate route that may be flown, or by a person approved by CASA.
Additionally, the details of waypoints and navigation aids are contained in navigation system databases such as Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Flight Management Computers (FMC) and Flight Management Systems (FMS).
CASR Part 175 will create standards to ensure that the integrity and quality of aeronautical data and aeronautical information is maintained throughout the aeronautical data processing chain from data originator to AIS provider to commercial data service providers.
The proposed CASR Part 175 will establish:
- the requirements for AIS providers
- the requirements for data service providers (current CAR 233 (1)(h) approval holders)
- the requirements for aeronautical data originators
- powers for collection of data about objects and structures that affect aviation safety.
CASR Part 175 will allow CASA to approve AIS providers and data service providers. Additionally, data service providers can be approved to publish aeronautical data and aeronautical information that can be used instead of the AIP or be approved to supply aeronautical data for air navigation databases.
This project was announced April 2009.
