CASA is seeking feedback on proposed changes to ensure the rules for sport and recreation aircraft (including gyroplanes) work as intended.
To resolve issues and make sure Part 149 of CASR and the Civil Aviation Orders (CAOs) function correctly prior to the end of the Part 149 transition period on 1 December 2023, we are proposing amendments to several 95-series CAOs.
CASA is seeking feedback on proposed changes to:
- provide for a sport aviation body who is an approved self-administering aviation organisation (ASAO) to administer gyroplane operations and activities (CAO 95.12 and CAO 95.12.1)
- ensure the CAO is consistent with the operational requirements of CAO 95.55 and regulation 91.880 of CASR that apply to aircraft with an experimental certificate of airworthiness (CAO 95.32)
- allow CASA to approve persons to conduct inspections on CAO 95.55 aeroplanes before their initial flight (CAO 95.55).
They are also seeking feedback on other minor changes to add clarity and ensure consistency with the certificate of airworthiness provisions of Subpart 21.H of CASR.
