Closes 31 Mar 2020

Overview

This is the initial advisory circular (AC) for Part 66 aircraft engineer licences - privileges.

This AC provides information and guidance to current and future holders of a Part 66 aircraft maintenance engineer licence and maintenance organisations, on the privileges of each category of a Part 66 licence.

This advisory circular (AC) applies to:

  • licensed aircraft maintenance engineers (LAMEs)
  • approved maintenance organisations (AMOs) (Part 145 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR))
  • certificate of approval holders for aircraft maintenance (regulation 30 of the Civil Aviation Regulations 1988 (CAR)).

Technical working group (TWG)

Consultation on the initial draft AC 66-08 v1.0, occurred in February and March 2019. Due to feedback received from TWG members at the time, many areas of the AC were re-drafted. The redrafted AC was again reviewed during the most recent TWG meeting held in late January 2020. The additional feedback received resulted in a final redraft by CASA. This version of the AC has been endorsed by the TWG for public consultation.
