Project CS 15/01 - Weight and Balance - Airships
There are currently no defined procedures or requirements for persons conducting weight and balance activities for Airships. This has become an issue with the recent request to operate an airship in Australia, the concern being the safety implications of incorrect weight and balance calculations and procedures.
- Creation and promulgation of a legislative instrument, similar to CAO 100.7 and CAO 100.96 (aircraft and balloons respectively).
- Define required procedures and qualifications for conducting weight and balance for airships.
This would be a new rule related to CAO 100.7 and CAO 100.96. A consolidation of all three into a single instrument remains a future option.
This project was approved by the Executive Manager, Standards Division 12 February 2015.
