CASA: Consultation draft - proposed flight test and proficiency check standards in the Part 61 MOS (

05-Sep-2017 Consultation draft - proposed flight test and proficiency check standards in the Part 61 MOS (CD 1619FS)                                                    

Overview

CASA is proposing changes to the flight test and proficiency check standards, as prescribed in Schedules 5 and 6 of the Part 61 Manual of Standards (MOS).

Examiners have found the current format of modifications and references to Schedule 2 to be an inflexible means by which to apply the flight test and proficiency check standards. Sometimes aircraft equipment, operational practice or location can lead to difficulties in applying the standards.

CASA has also found instances where several test and check items were addressing a common activity or manoeuvre, but used different terms. For example, items for planning, briefing, and conducting take-off and departure procedures for various tests and checks were written in different ways even though all of the items were targeting the same matters. As a result, and in conjunction with an update to the Flight Examiners’ Handbook (FEH), CASA is proposing to update the Schedule 5 and 6 flight test and proficiency check standards.
