202.232  Initial periods of registration of aircraft as model aircraft

             (1)  Subregulation (2) applies if:

                     (a)  an aircraft begins to be registered as a model aircraft under Division 47.C.2 during the period beginning on the model aircraft stage 1 application day and ending on 26 April 2022; and

                     (b)  a certificate of registration is issued for the model aircraft under subparagraph 47.098(2)(b)(i).

             (2)  Despite subparagraph 47.099(2)(b)(i), the registration of the model aircraft ends in accordance with the following table, unless sooner cancelled:

 

Initial periods of registration of aircraft as model aircraft

Item

If the aircraft begins to be registered as a model aircraft under Division 47.C.2 during the period …

the registration ends at the end of …

1

between 1 March 2022 and 15 March 2022

29 June 2023

2

between 16 March 2022 and 29 March 2022

22 June 2023

3

15 June 2023

4

between 13 April 2022 and 26 April 2022

8 June 2023

Note 1:       The registration of an aircraft as a model aircraft under Division 47.C.2 on or after 27 April 2022, or any later day, generally ends 12 months after the day on which the aircraft begins to be so registered. For example, if an aircraft begins to be so registered on 15 May 2022, the registration generally ends on 14 May 2023. However, this is only the case if the certificate of registration for the model aircraft is issued under subparagraph 47.099(2)(b)(i).

Note 2:       A certificate of registration originally issued under subparagraph 47.098(2)(b)(i) for one model aircraft (the original model aircraft) may later be reissued under subregulation 47.099A(2) to include evidence of the registration of an additional model aircraft. The registration of the additional model aircraft ends at the same time as that of the original model aircraft, no matter when the additional model aircraft was registered—see subparagraph 47.099(2)(b)(ii).

             (3)  If the Director, under subregulation 202.229(2), determines a day for the purposes of the definition of model aircraft stage 1 application day in subregulation 202.229(1) that is later than 1 March 2022 by a particular number of days (the extended number of days), a reference in subregulation (1) or (2) to a particular date is taken to be a reference to the date that is the extended number of days later.

Example:    If the day determined under subregulation 202.229(2) is 15 March 2022 (14 days later than 1 March 2022), a reference to a particular date in subregulations (1) and (2) of this regulation is taken to be a reference to the date that is 14 days later than the date expressly mentioned.
