CASA acknowledges the intent of this Recommendation. It is intended, under the proposed CASR Part 119 to introduce a Safety Management System, among other issues, for air transport operators. Essentially these proposals provide for training and checking for crews flying with small operators and a greater regulatory emphasis on the responsibilities of key personnel in a company, including the head of flying operations.
