Survey | Equipment and organisational systems in RPT and charter operations (ID F18/602)

Closed 29 Apr 2018

Opened 29 Mar 2018


CASA is inviting industry to participate in this survey to provide us important information about their equipment and organisational systems in the conduct of their regular public transport and charter operations.  

Why are we surveying 

CASA is developing new flight operations rules as part of a program of regulatory reform.

Among the rules in development are Parts 119, 133 and 135 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR).

These rules regulate:

  • administrative matters of air operator's certificate (AOC) holders (Part 119)
  • operational matters of air transport operations using rotorcraft (Part 133)
  • operational matters of air transport operations using small aircraft, which are those with a maximum take-off weight (MTOW) of 8168 kg or less and a maximum operational seating capacity of nine or less (Part 135).

The results of this survey will inform the development of the draft regulations taking into consideration safety, cost, risk and international obligations.  By contributing to this survey, operators will have the opportunity to collaborate with CASA on the development of the regulations. 

What happens next

At the end of the response period, we will collate data and decide on any modifications that may be necessary to ensure to the proposed regulations provide appropriate safety standards. The regulatory development process will then continue with the publication of a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM).

An NPRM is an opportunity for industry and public stakeholders to further collaborate with CASA on the proposed rules.  You can subscribe to an RSS feed and a flight operations mailing list to be notified of future consultation or rule making on this subject.
