[Avionics Today 07-05-2016] Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Association (CASA) has announced two new exemptions, which provide alternatives to the aircraft rating flight review and instrument proficiency check rules. The exemptions took effect on July 1.
The changes include CASA EX93/16, which provides alternative requirements for pilot type rating instrument proficiency checks, and CASA EX 97/16, which provides an alternative to the aircraft class rating and pilot type rating biennial flight reviews, with an aircraft category and multi-engine aircraft requirement.
The license entries required to be made by flight instructors and flight examiners on a Part 61 flight crew licensing document will not change as a result of the new requirements. Consequently, pilots do not need to apply for a new license as a result of these changes. According to CASA, any authorizations that appeared on a pilot’s license before the changes were introduced will remain valid.
