Project OS 13/25 Safety Standards for community service flights conducted on a voluntary basis
This project considers how community service flights conducted in the public interest by volunteer pilots and aircraft operators should be regulated.
Community service flights which are potentially open to a wide section of the community are conducted by pilots with varying experience and qualification levels. Similarly, the aircraft involved could vary from an amateur-built experimental aircraft through to a turbine powered corporate aircraft.
As this aviation activity becomes more widely used, the variable pilot qualifications and aircraft certification and maintenance standards become significant potential risk indicators, which CASA must consider and regulate appropriately in order to maintain an acceptable level of safety for the pilots, their passengers and the public.
Develop appropriate standards for community service flights that balance the safety risks inherent with the activity with rational approaches to the mitigation of those risks whilst recognising the social utility of the activity.
Develop regulations and apply appropriate carve-ins and carve-outs where required in the new CASR Parts.
Develop guidance material that serves to educate the aviation community about their responsibilities under new regulations in relation to community service flights.
This project is associated with CASR Part 119.
