CASA EX92/21 — Flight Reviews, Proficiency Checks and Related Matters (Extensions of Time Due to COVID-19) Exemptions Instrument 2021

1          Name

                 This instrument is CASA EX92/21 — Flight Reviews, Proficiency Checks and Related Matters (Extensions of Time Due to COVID-19) Exemptions Instrument 2021.

2          Duration

                 This instrument:

(a)   commences on the day of registration; and

(b)   is repealed at the end of 31 March 2022.

3          Definitions

        (1)     In this instrument:

active show cause notice means a show cause notice, under the Civil Aviation Act 1988, which has not been resolved by a CASA decision to take no action.

AOC means air operator’s certificate.

CAO 82.6 means Civil Aviation Order 82.6, as in force immediately before 2 December 2021.

CAR means the Civil Aviation Regulations 1988.

CASR means the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations 1998.

MOS is short for Manual of Standards.

NVIS is short for night vision imaging system and has the meaning given by regulation 61.010.

NVIS aircrew member has the meaning given by CAO 82.6.

Part 141 certificate means a certificate issued under regulation 141.060 of CASR.

Part 141 operator is the holder of a Part 141 certificate.

Part 142 authorisation has the meaning given by subregulation 142.015 (5) of CASR.

Part 142 operator is the holder of a Part 142 authorisation.

SRMP is short for a Safety Risk Mitigation Plan that is approved in writing by CASA, being a plan that sets out the arrangements that operators, who have an approved training and checking organisation, must follow to enjoy the benefit of an exemption to which the SRMP relates.

Note   An SRMP extends an alleviation period up to 31 March 2022, and as such is considered by CASA to be an acceptable alternative method of achieving pilot proficiency outcomes that cannot be completed in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

         (2     In this instrument, a reference to anything approved by CASA means approved by CASA in writing.

        (3)     Subject to subsection (1), in this instrument words and phrases have the same meaning as in Part 61 of CASR, unless the contrary intention appears.
