CASA Grants 147 to Australian Aero
Australian Aerospace has received Part 147 certificate approval from the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Australian Aerospace becomes the first civil helicopter maintenance training operator in the Asia-Pacific region to receive such approval under a new series of maintenance safety regulations in Australia.
“The new regulations, which came into force in June this year, will enhance safety because they introduce requirements for safety management systems and human factors training into the maintenance sector for the first time,” according to John McCormick, director of aviation safety for CASA.
McCormick also added that while operators had up to two years to transition to the new safety regulations, Australian Aerospace completed it in less than six months.
