Briefing for new Part 61 licences

written by WOFA | September 26, 2013

CASA is holding a series of briefings for pilots on new licensing regulations, which take effect from December 4 2013.

The briefings will be held simultaneously on Monday October 21 between 1800 and 2100 in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.

Information will be provided on the content of the new pilot licensing rules, what they mean for each category of pilot and how new licences will be issued. Pilots will be moved across to the new Part 61 licences progressively over four years from December 4. The new licences will be issued when a pilot updates their qualifications with CASA – such as by upgrading a licence, undertaking a flight review or obtaining a new rating. Part 61 licences will not be issued when a medical is renewed.

While much of the content of the six capital city briefings in October will mirror information on pilot licensing provided in the AvSafety seminars, there will be updates on the details of the new rules and the transition process.

Details about the briefing are available here.
