CASA seeking input on regulations covering aerodromes

    Australia‘s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) CEO and director of aviation safety Shane Carmody reported (26-Sep-2017) a consultation exercise is underway as part of updating and improving the regulations covering aerodromes. CASA is seeking responses on 11 specific proposals to make changes to Part 139 of the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations and the associated manual of standards. The aim is to make the aerodrome safety requirements more streamlined, flexible and practical. CASA will also seek to reduce regulatory costs and burdens wherever possible. The current aerodrome regulations were made in 2003 and changes in technology, international standards and best practices mean an update is timely. [more – original PR]
