Project OS 14/19 - Administrative update to Part 60 of CASR and Manual of Standards (MOS)
Project closed 4 February 2015.
The changes to Part 60 of CASR 1998 were made by the Civil Aviation Legislation Amendment (Airworthiness and Other Matters- 2015 Measures No. 1) Regulation 20151 the relevant provisions of which commenced on 15 December 2015 (Items 8 and 9 of Schedule 1) available on Comlaw.
The Part 60 Manual of Standards Amendment Instrument 2016 (No. 1) has been published on the Federal Register of Legislative Instruments website and is now in effect (FRLI number: F2016L00087).
Part 60 and MOS allow the use of international standards for the qualification of helicopter flight simulators, and aeroplane and helicopter flight training devices.
Part 60 MOS
Sections 4 and 5 of the MOS currently reference the Joint Aviation Requirement - Helicopter Flight Simulation Training Devices (JAR FSTD H) and the Joint Aviation Requirement - Aeroplane Flight Simulation Training Devices (JAR FSTD A).
These documents were superseded by the European Aviation Safety Agency - Certification Specifications for Helicopter Flight Simulation Training Devices (CS-FSTD(H)) and the European Aviation Safety Agency - Certification Specifications for Aeroplane Flight Simulation Training Devices (CS-FSTD(A)) on 4 July 2012.
Table 60.020-2 currently lists the flight training device levels. As a result of the proposed change of MOS standards, it is necessary to change the "JAA Level 1" to "EASA Level 1" and "JAA Level 2" to "EASA Level 2".
"JAA Level 3" was omitted from the original Part 60. A helicopter FTD can be qualified as JAA Level 3. Consequently, "EASA Level 3" should be added.
This regulatory change should occur before the next qualification of a helicopter flight simulator, or helicopter / aeroplane flight training device.
The project proposes to:
- update the Part 60 MOS references from the JAR FSTD documents to the EASA CS-FSTD documents, and
- update Table 60.020-2 Flight training device qualification levels as follows:
|1||FAA Level 4|
|2||FAA Level 5|
|3||FAA Level 6|
|4||FAA Level 7|
|5||EASA Level 1|
|6||EASA Level 2|
|7||EASA Level 3|
Regulation 60.020, Sections 4 and 5 of the Part 60 MOS.
