i) more appropriately define the minimum flight experience requirements for a chief pilot applicant of an organisation engaged in the carriage of fare-paying passengers, by clearly defining the relevance of particular types of experience to the nature of the operation; and

(ii) develop a process to assess the ability of a chief pilot applicant to administer and manage regulatory and safety compliance.

Response text:

With respect to the recommendation R19980277, and to the findings of the above report:

Recommendation (i) ... "that CASA more appropriately define the minimum flight experience requirements for a chief pilot applicant..." The Civil Aviation Safety Authority's is that ACOM Vol 2 and CAO 82 appendix 1 adequately define and amplify the requirements for the experience levels of a chief pilot.

Recommendation (ii) ... "that CASA develop a process to assess the ability of a chief pilot applicant to administer and manage rregulatory and safety compliance". CASA agrees with the recommendation which suggests development of a process to assess the ability of a chief pilot applicant to administer and manage regulatory and safety compliance. Amendment to the AOCM is appropriate to more adequately address system safety management.
