Project FS 05/02 - Multi-engine aeroplane flight training
New rulechange project has been registered.
Recent ATSB accident reports have identified shortcomings in pilot competence in engine-out emergency procedures and in pilot training and testing methods and the ATSB has recommended CASA address these issues. Other aviation authorities approach multi-engine training in different ways and CASA has recently received correspondence questioning specific training practices common in this country.
CASA needs to provide the aviation community with authoritative guidance material addressing these issues and needs to re-examine multi-engine training practices in the light of their effectiveness and the safety implications of conducting particular exercises. This material has already been identified as the subject of an advisory circular under the future CASR Part 61 but these recent events suggest an interim response is appropriate.
This project sets out to review CAAP 5.23-1(0) and incorporate additional guidance in multi-engine aeroplane operation and flight training based on available data and current best practice. Some revision of commonly accepted multi-engine training sequences and methods may be involved. The CAAP's amendment would also be expanded to include operational and training guidance, competency standards and risk management for instructors and examiners who deliver this type of training.
