Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion to disallow the Civil Aviation (Community Service Flights - Conditions on Flight Crew Licences) Instrument 2019, which would have meant that the Instrument would stop having legal force. The motion was introduced by SA Senator Rex Patrick (Centre Alliance), which means it failed and the Instrument will remain in force.

What is the purpose of the Instrument?

According to the Instrument's explanatory memorandum:

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has assessed that community service flight operations have a higher risk of an accident or incident due to the existence of risk factors that are not usually present in baseline private operations. The purpose of the instrument is to mitigate this risk by placing conditions on flight crew licence holders conducting such operations that relate to requirements on the pilot (licence requirements, aeronautical experience, recency and medical fitness), operational and notification requirements and aircraft maintenance requirements.
