Comments
This proposal generated the most discussion within our group, but when compared to the existing CAR reg 173, we see this change as an improvement. We do however question why you see the need to double the penalty points associated with this new reg compared with CAR 173

Comments
We have been quite impressed with the obvious homework done by CASA on this Part prior to releasing it for consultation. The webinar was a good idea and was well presented There has been a significant dose of common sense applied to all the proposed changes and there are no apparent hidden agendas. The difference between the implementation of this Part and part 61 is so huge it is difficult to believe the work has been done by the same organisation. The quality of the work on this Part is such that we decided that we should 'just get on with it'. Well done CASA,

2. One of the aims was to primarily consolidate the current rules and carry over existing regulatory requirements. If you exclude the changes listed in the Summary of Proposed Changes, has this been achieved?

Following are a couple of minor 'typo' type matters for consideration: MOS MDA definition - change the word 'attitude' to 'altitude' MOS Table 2.03 (4) does not show the criteria for Class G VMC Page 51 - Add definition for IRCC MOS 13.01 (Last IFR should be VFR) (2) For the definition in regulation 91.365 of specified VFR cruising level for a track, section 13.04 prescribes the cruising level for an aircraft in an IFR flight on the track. 25.02 (7) Listening watch (7) For the purpose of making required reports and broadcasts, the PIC of an aircraft in an operation below 5 000 ft in Class G airspace: (a) must maintain a listening watch on the area VHF; and (b) if necessary for the safety of the operation — must maintain a listening watch on frequencies other than the area VHF. Please compare with table 30.80 (1) where there is no requirement to carry a radio below 5000 feet except in a CTAFR area. IFR aircraft should be required to carry 2 radios or a radio capable of monitoring a second frequency, so they can monitor CTAF frequency on arrival to improve their situational awareness, as well as communicate on the area frequency. MOS Table 30.06 (2) requires magnetic heading equipment as follows; The system must be: (a) a direct reading magnetic compass; or (b) a remote indicating compass and a standby direct reading magnetic compass. It would seem more than appropriate in this day and age to add a (c) that allows some combination of 2 or more remote indicating compasses without the need for a direct reading magnetic compass?
