When the new flight operations rules began on 2 December, the guidance material and forms also needed to change. Some documents have been updated; others are no longer needed.
We have compiled a list of CAAPs and ACs that have been removed from our website. You’ll find it below.
It’s easy to find current guidance material. Simply click on the type of guidance material you are after and then narrow your search. And don’t forget to click on any Associated Documents, where you may find useful Annexes.
There are two new forms for regulatory service applications – one for Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) holders and Part 138 Aerial Work Certificate holders, the other is for Aerial Work Certificate holders only. (There is also a form for Balloon AOC holders.) In nearly all cases, if you’re applying for an air transport or aerial work activity, you only need to use these forms. This includes:
- making an initial application
- requesting a renewal or removal of aircraft or activities
- applying for a significant change or to make notification to CASA of a non-significant change.
There are some application forms that you no longer need to complete. This is because the outcomes-based nature of the rules means that certain activities may have already been approved in your Exposition/Operations Manual and variations to these approvals are now assessed via a significant change application.
All the current forms related to the new flight operations rules. You’ll also find guidance material on management of change including significant and non-significant change.
CASA is experiencing a significant increase in the number of regulatory services applications, and we currently have a backlog. When contacting us:
- Check whether you still need to seek approval for that activity in the new regulations.
- Remember that we only need to be notified of non-significant change, while permission needs to be sought for significant change.
- If your application has a time critical component please identify this in your email so we can triage appropriately.
- If your application is not time critical you may not hear from us with a job number for a period of time. We will get to your job as quickly as possible.
You may also wish to consider using an industry delegate.
Once your job has been allocated to a team manager you will contacted by email and given advice about when the job will be completed.
