Closes 31 Jan 2019

Consultation Contents

Proposed policy - maintenance regulations for aircraft in private and aerial work operations

This consultation is seeking feedback on the proposed policy to develop a tailored set of maintenance regulations for GA that will be based on the US-FARs.

GA covers all flying activity carried out by VH registered aircraft other than charter and air transport operations. This includes flying training, mustering, firefighting, emergency service operations, search and rescue, aerial surveying and photography, towing, and private flying.

Aircraft that are occasionally used in charter operations will continue to be maintained by a CAR 30 approval holder, regardless of other GA uses.

If you are not familiar with the FARs we have extracted the relevant policy outcomes that will come into effect under the proposed changes.

The proposed policy contained in this consultation sets out the desired outcomes in 6 main topic areas and will provide a clear explanation of the responsibilities that will apply under the new regulations to:

  • an aircraft operator
  • a person doing maintenance and
  • a pilot of an aircraft.

Fact-banks have been included throughout the survey for each policy topic, to highlight significant matters that you should consider before providing a response.

The survey has been designed to give you the option to provide feedback on the survey in its entirety or to provide feedback on the policy topics applicable to you.

When you have completed the sections on which you wish to provide feedback, select the ‘Finish’ button at the bottom right of this page.
