Project OS 99/44 - CASR Part 121 - Australian air transport operations - larger aeroplanes
In 1999, CASA was directed to 'minimise the distinction between charter and regular public transport (RPT) operators'. To address this, Part 121 of CASR 1998 will set in place a common level of safety for operators who are authorised to provide an air transport operation, an amalgamation of current charter and RPT operations and standards - in order to carry passengers in large aeroplanes. The safety level applies irrespective of whether an operation is scheduled or non-scheduled, as described by ICAO in Part I of Annex 6.
Part 121 of CASR 1998 will consolidate existing rules for larger aeroplane charter and RPT, currently housed across the CAR, CAO and numerous legislative instruments, into one Part of the CASRs and a Manual of Standards. These regulatory requirements will apply in addition to, or in substitution for, the general operating and flight rules prescribed in Part 91 of CASR 1998, when using larger aeroplanes for air transport operations.
The Part will replace all affected Civil Aviation Regulations 1988 (CAR 1988) and Civil Aviation Orders (CAO) and will integrate with the rules in the other CASRs, principally Parts 91 and 119 of CASR 1998. It will largely cover the same regulatory areas as it currently does, but with new rules, mostly to give effect to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annex 6 Part I standards and recommended practices (SARPs), many of which are not currently incorporated into Australian aviation legislation.
This project was approved and announced October 1999.
