CASA EX136/20 Exemptions as made
This instrument exempts pilots conducting incendiary dropping operations below 500 feet above ground or water level from holding an authorisation required under Part 61 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998 (CASR). Under this instrument, pilots and operators will be allowed to conduct such operations without the pilot holding an aerial application rating, if the pilot holds a low-level rating and a low-level endorsement for the category of aircraft being used. The instrument would have the effect of replacing CASA EX25/20 — Incendiary Dropping (At or Above 500 Feet) Exemption 2020 (CASA EX25/20) with less restrictive requirements. Exemptions from Part 137 of CASR contained in CASA EX25/20, are included in this instrument. In addition, directions and a low-flying permit are included to allow low-level incendiary dropping operations.
