CASA - Notice of Proposed Rule Making

Please read the following supporting documentation then complete the online survey in relation to the CASA NPRM - Regulation of aeroplane and helicopter 'ambulance' function' flights as Air Transport operations:

The purpose of this NPRM is to advise the public and aviation community of CASA's intent to regulate, to the greatest extent practicable, ambulance function flights to the same safety standards that are currently applicable to AT operations. This will extend to adoption of AOC certification requirements, operating standards and maintenance standards.

The NPRM outlines a new and updated policy that specifically categorises Medical Transport (MT) flights so that they operate under the requirements of an AT AOC (issued under Part 119 of CASR) and the applicable operational rule set (i.e. Part 133 of CASR for helicopter operations and either Part 121 or 135 of CASR for aeroplane operations).

The proposed policy will ensure that appropriate mechanisms are included within the AT regulations to afford MT flights with:
  • sufficient operational flexibility
  • the safety benefits available under Part 119 of CASR.

A link to the online survey has been emailed to all financial members.

Please complete the survey to respond to the key change proposal and to submit any comments or suggested changes.

No rule changes will be undertaken until all NPRM responses and submissions received by the closing date 27 September 2013 have been considered.
