                 For this instrument, the following expressions are defined:

Note   For active participation see participation.

hold short line means a line on a hold short runway beyond which the pilot in command of a landing aircraft, following the pilot’s active participation, is instructed not to proceed.

hold short runway means a runway used for LAHSO, being a runway that has aerodrome signs, runway markings and lighting requirements in accordance with the applicable standards.

instrument flying means controlling an aircraft’s attitude during flight solely by reference to the aircraft’s flight instruments.

LAHSO means a Land and Hold Short Operation, being an operation in which the pilot in command of an aircraft has accepted a requirement to land on a hold short runway and hold short of the hold short line.

participation, in relation to LAHSO, has the following meanings:

(a)   active participation means accepting a requirement to hold short of a hold short line, after receiving an alert about aircraft on a crossing runway;

(b)   passive participation means having unrestricted use of a full runway but acknowledging an alert about a LAHSO on a crossing runway.

visual flying means controlling an aircraft’s attitude during flight by reference to features outside the aircraft.

4          Practising instrument flying

It is a condition on an aeroplane pilot licence that the holder of the aeroplane pilot licence must not practice instrument flying in an aeroplane while the aeroplane is flying under the V.F.R. unless:

(a)   all the following requirements are satisfied:

             (i)  the aeroplane is equipped with fully functioning dual controls;

            (ii)  the other control seat is occupied by a person who is authorised under Part 61 of CASR to conduct a flight in the aircraft;

Appendix 1

Standards to be met for the LAHSO logbook certification

1   Introduction

  1.1     This Appendix specifies the standards of competency and aeronautical knowledge required for the issue of a LAHSO logbook certification. These standards must be satisfied by a combined oral examination and practical check carried out by a person authorised to issue the logbook certification.

  1.2     Before the issue of a LAHSO endorsement, the applicant must demonstrate that the standards of flying competency specified in Appendix 2 have been achieved.

  1.3     The oral examination must indicate an ability to satisfy each of the items included in the aeronautical knowledge syllabus detailed in clause 2 of this Appendix.

  1.4     In the oral examination, candidates may refer to AIP (complete — including En Route Supplement Australia (ERSA) and Aerodrome Directory) and Parts 20 to 99 of the Civil Aviation Orders.

  1.5     The practical check must be conducted in an aeroplane at an aerodrome at which LAHSO are authorised or in a synthetic flight trainer approved by CASA as suitable for that purpose. LAHSO need not be in use at an aerodrome during the test if the appropriate procedures are simulated by the person conducting the check.
