    We are seeking feedback on an instrument that will establish a tailored system for training, assessment, grant, and exercise of: sling operations endorsements winch and rappelling operations endorsements firefighting endorsements. You told us practical barriers to the efficient conduct of flight training and entry control assessment for these specialised endorsements have emerged since the flight crew licensing rules commenced in 2014.

  • Proposed instrument (CASA EX64/22) - Flight Training and Flight Tests by Grade 1 Training Endorsement Holders (Exemptions and Approvals) - (CD 2212FS)

    We are reviewing parts of the flight training and testing scheme that are not working as efficiently as intended. Since the commencement of the flight crew licensing rules in 2014, practical barriers to the efficient conduct of entry control testing have emerged, and the intended proportionate approach to flight testing has not materialised. Part 61 enables the holder of a Pilot Instructor Rating to apply for a training endorsement which permits them to instruct someone... More

  • Multi-engine helicopter ratings (CD 2209FS)

    You told us about the difficulties facing rotary wing pilots, instructors and flight examiners because single-pilot, less complex multi-engine helicopters don’t have a class rating enjoyed by their fixed-wing equivalents. We understand that the current approach to prescribe a type rating for each multi-engine helicopter is a key reason for the limited availability of suitably qualified flight instructors, flight examiners, and flight training operators (FTO) to conduct...

  • Proposed relocation of NVIS legislation into Parts 91, 133 and 138 Manuals of Standards - (CD 2109OS)

    CASA is seeking comment on the proposed rules for using night vision imaging systems (NVIS), that will apply from 2 December 2021. NVIS legislation currently resides in Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 82.6 and Instrument Number 288/07 and is supported by Civil Aviation Advisory Publication 174-01. In line with the movement of flight operations related Civil Aviation Regulations and CAO’s into the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations (CASRs) and Manuals of Standards (MOSs), CASA is... More

  • Proposed amendment to Part 61 Manual of Standards - Spin avoidance and stall recovery training - (CD 1913FS)

    Recovery from departures from controlled flight—in particular stall and spin—has long been a required competency in flight training and is described in the Part 61 Manual of Standards (MOS). Recent fatal accidents have highlighted the need to remind pilots, flight instructors and flight training operators of the risks associated with stall and spin training, and to review flight training practices in Australia and worldwide. The present practice of ‘incipient spin’ training and... More

  • Draft AC 61-16 v1.0 - Spin avoidance and stall recovery training

    The purpose of this Advisory Circular (AC) is to highlight to flight training operators and instructors, the risks associated with advanced stalling training, when conducted in aircraft that are not certified for intentional spins and minimize the potential for negative transfer of training. The induction of spins in aircraft not certified for spinning has been occurring in the flying training context. It is possible this is due to the confounding of the definitions of the words... More

  • Draft CAAP 48-01 v3.0 – Fatigue management for flight crew members

    Following extensive consultation with the aviation community, we have finalised the new fatigue rules under Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 48.1 Instrument 2019. Links to the latest rules and a summary of consultation, including CASA’s rationale for the changes are available below: Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 48.1 Instrument 2019 Summary of consultation on Modernising Australia’s fatigue rules - proposed CAO 48.1 Instrument 2019 - (CD 1811OS) ...

  • Modernising Australia’s fatigue rules - proposed CAO 48.1 Instrument 2019 - (CD 1811OS)

    CASA’s response to the independent review of fatigue rules identified 54 actions to address the review team recommendations. The proposed Civil Aviation Order (CAO) 48.1 Instrument 2019, aims to address 12 of these actions to support the transition of high capacity regular public transport operators to the new rules by 30 September 2019. A further amendment to the rules may be required in 2019 to support the transition of other operators to the new rules by 26 March 2020. ... More

  • Proposal to change initial helicopter pilot licence training requirements (NPRM 1714FS)

    Changes to the helicopter flight crew licensing regulations in Part 61 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR) are being proposed. These changes include: adding a 105 hour training course option for the commercial pilot licence with helicopter category rating – CPL(H), this course would be conducted by an organisation with an approval under Part 141 of the CASR, and removing the mandatory requirement for basic instrument flight training for the grant of...
