CASA EX93/18 — Instrument Proficiency Checks for Aircraft Type Ratings Exemption 2018

1          Name

                 This instrument in the CASA EX93/18 — Instrument Proficiency Checks for Aircraft Type Ratings Exemption 2018.

2          Duration

                 This instrument:

(a)   commences on 1 September 2018; and

(b)   is repealed at the end of 31 August 2021.

3          Definitions

        (1)     Subject to subsection (2), in this instrument words and phrases have the same meaning as in Part 61 of CASR.

        (2)     In this instrument:

IPC means instrument proficiency check.

        (3)     A reference in this instrument to a provision that includes the numerals 61, is a reference to the provision in Part 61 of CASR.

        (4)     A reference to the 12‑month period in subsection 6 (1) is a reference to the period of 12 months calculated in the same way as the period would be calculated under subregulation 61.805 (3) if this instrument had not been made.

        (5)     A reference to the 24‑month period:

(a)   in subsection 6 (1) — is a reference to the period of 24 months calculated in the same way as the 12‑month period is calculated; or

(b)   in subsections 8 (1) and 10 (1) — is a reference to the period of 24 months calculated in the same way as the period would be calculated under subregulation 61.805 (2) if this instrument had not been made.

4          Exemption No. 1 — Single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type ratings

        (1)     The holder of a single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type rating (the SP type rating holder), for the exercise of the privileges of the rating under the IFR, is exempted from subregulation 61.805 (3).

        (2)     The SP type rating holder is exempted from subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6).

        (3)     The exemptions in this section are subject to the conditions in sections 5 and 10.

5          Conditions – Exemption No. 1 – Single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type ratings

        (1)     The SP type rating holder must have a valid IPC as if the requirements under subregulation 61.805 (3), to have a valid IPC for the aeroplane type covered by the rating during the 12‑month period, applied as a requirement to have a valid IPC for any single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type during the 24‑month period.

Note   Thus, for an SP type rating holder, the 12-monthly IPC requirement under subregulations 61.805 (1) and (3) may be satisfied by a 24-monthly IPC in any single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type.

        (2)     Subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) must be complied with as if they applied despite the exemption in subsection 4 (2) of this instrument, except that references to “relevant aircraft” for paragraphs 61.805 (3) (e) and (f) must be taken to be references to any single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type (rather than the particular single-pilot turbojet aeroplane type covered by the SP type rating holder’s rating).

Note   Thus, it is a condition of the exemption from the requirements in subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) that subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) be complied with, but in the particular context of the operation of the exemption.

        (2)     Subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) must be complied with as if they applied despite the exemption in subsection 6 (2) of this instrument, except that references to “relevant aircraft” for paragraphs 61.805 (2) (e) and (f) must be taken to be references to any multi-crew aircraft type in the same category as that of the multi-crew type rating holder’s rating (rather than the particular aircraft type covered by the holder’s rating).

Note   Thus, it is a condition of the exemption from the requirements in subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) that subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) be complied with, but in the particular context of the operation of the exemption.

Note   Thus, it is a condition of the exemption from the requirements in subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) that subregulations 61.805 (5) and (6) be complied with, but in the particular context of the operation of the exemption.
