Australia passes FAA audit

written by WOFA | April 19, 2010

Australia has retained its Category One status following an audit by the US Federal Aviation Administration, which was conducted at the invitation of CASA.

“Australia can continue to be very proud of our aviation safety record and the effort we make to maintain that record,” said CASA CEO John McCormick.  “The audit recognised there had been a past under investment in technical training for CASA staff and supported CASA’s current initiatives to provide even more comprehensive technical training.”

The audit found that Australia’s system of aviation safety oversight met the applicable international standards, resulting in the retention of Category One rating, which allows Australian registered carriers to continue to freely serve the US without additional oversight.
