Project OS 13/30 - Post-implementation review of CASR 137 - Aerial Application Operations - Amendment by the inclusion of Rotorcraft
Part 137 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (1988) prescribes the rules that relate to flying and operating aeroplanes, and the maintenance of role equipment, in aerial application operations. Currently CASR Part 137 applies to aeroplanes engaged in aerial application operations and not rotorcraft. Rotorcraft operations are not included in the current Part 137 and continue to be governed by the existing Civil Aviation Regulations 1988 (CARs).
CASR Part 137 replaced the provisions within CARs and Civil Aviation Orders that applied to fixed wing aerial agricultural operations. It also includes aerial application procedures such as firefighting and application of dispersants.
CASR Part 137 took effect on 26 May 2007. There was a one year transition period ending on 25 May 2008. The current Part 137 is due for a post implementation review and it is considered that the current Part 137 will require changes to be made to the style and content of the existing provisions to ensure consistency with the other operational parts.
The project will conduct a post implementation review of Part 137 and amend the current Part 137 by including rotorcraft aerial application operations within the part.
This project is associated with Part 134 of CASR.
