Last edited: 15 March 2021, 2:38pm

RAAus is proud to announce the approval of our CASR Part 149 certificate which comes into effect on 31 March 2021. RAAus is only the second Approved Self-Administering Aviation Organisation (ASAO) to be issued with a Part 149 certificate. This formal announcement comes following our recent board meeting where the Board of Directors ratified the final amendments to our Operations and Technical manuals for the implementation of Part 149.

It is very important that members are aware that new editions to the Operations Manual (Version 7.1.1) and Technical Manual (4.1) come into effect on the 31st of March 2021.

Part 149 simplifies the regulatory arrangements that have existed for many decades with sport and recreational aviation organisations through conditional exemptions from the standard aviation rules. CASR Part 149 brings more transparency, flexibility and certainty for the sector.

RAAus has dedicated a large amount of time and resource over the past 3 years to prepare for the application and implementation of Part 149. Much of this work included the overhaul of many internal and external documents and policies to align with 149 requirements, and also standardising and consolidating RAAus’ processes and procedures.

RAAus has worked with CASA to ensure that Part 149 results in no material change or financial impost for members. This means that most members will be able to continue to operate with no change to their daily operations. Part 149 provides assurance to members that RAAus’ processes and procedures are standardised and consistent, providing protection for both members and the organisation. It also further legitimises the framework under which we operate as an organisation.
