a big step backward

I have been a supporter and believer of the CASA reform program since the Aviation Safety Regulation Review was handed down, but right now I am feeling deflated, questioning if someone is yanking my chain and wondering if the reform indicators have just been goggles made from wool. What has me in this malaise are the CASA proposals for customer service flights (CSF). The directives have no logic nor reasoning, defy any form of statistical proof, are on shaky legal grounds and demonstrate that the CASA tail is still being wagged by nefarious dogs within. It has eroded any trust and belief in reform and has the industry wondering if the effort to rebuild that trust is really worth it. A quick re-cap: CASA wants CSF flights to or from medical appointments…

Editor’s Pick This reader has doubts about the make-up of CASA’s ASAP panel, and they are not a voice in the wilderness. Small, but not Representative Announcing the new Aviation Safety Advisory Panel (ASAP) body in 2017, CASA CEO and DAS Shane Carmody said that “The ASAP will be the primary advisory body through which CASA will direct its engagement with industry and seek input on current and future regulatory and associated policy approaches … Agreement on the policy approach and actions to address identified issues will be achieved before work and effort are put into implementing solutions.” Mr Carmody states (Australian Flying Nov-Dec 18 page 79): “The Aviation Safety Advisory Panel–the group of industry people who give me high-level advice–has been fundamental to our success in 2018.” But further, in a review of CASA…

angel flight slams casa over proposed csf rules

Angel Flight CEO Majorie Pagani has fired a broad-side to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) in her response to the proposed changes to community service flights (CSF). In a submission to CASA in January, Pagani described the proposals as imposing administrative directions on pilots who fly legally on CASA-granted licences, saying that the new requirements would have the impact of curtailing the rights of pilots and owners. Among the restrictions put forward, CASA is proposing that CSF pilots must: • have 400 hours total time and 250 in command• have 100 hours flight time for multi-engine aircraft• have 10 hours time-on-type for VFR operations• have 20 hours time-on-type for IFR operations• have done at least one landing in the previous 30 day in the aircraft type or class CASA is also looking to…

casa completes flight operations suite

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) completed reforms on the six flight operations parts of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations in mid December last year. Known within CASA as the “six-pack”, the regulations cover most flight operations in powered aircraft, and are the rules that underpin most flying operations. The six regulations are: • CASR 91 – General Operating and Flight Rules• CASR 119 – Certification and Management of Air Operators’ Certificates• CASR 121 – Air Transport Operations – Large Aircraft• CASR 133 – Air Transport Operations – Rotorcraft• CASR 135 – Air Transport Operations – Small Aircraft• CASR 138 – Airwork Operations “These new rules have been developed in close consultation with our aviation industry, which is recognised as one of the safest in the world but we can always do better and…

rotortech relocates to brisbane

Australia’s growing helicopter industry exhibition, Rotortech, will relocate to Brisbane’s Royal International Convention Centre (RICC) from 2020. Traditionally held on the Sunshine Coast, the event has grown significantly since its inception in 2014, leading to the event organisers, Aviation Maritime Defence Security Foundation of Australia (AMDSFA), looking for a larger home. The 2018 event attracted 996 registered delegates and more than 80 exhibitors, with major international companies such as Airbus, Bell, Robinson and Sikorsy attending alongside operators such as Becker Helicopters, Heliflite, Precision Heliparts and Hawker Pacific. The event was so well supported and sponsored that the organisers took the step of making delegate registration free, and refunded money to delegates that had already paid. RICC is a part of the Brisbane Showgrounds, which AMDSFA believes will provide more exhibition space, increased conference facilities…
