Aviation safety issues and actions
Recommendation issued to: Civil Aviation Safety Authority
|Date issued:||30 October 2007|
|Safety action status:||Closed - Action Taken|
|Background:||Why this Recommendation was developed|
Currently, Civil Aviation Advisory Publication (CAAP) 42B-1(0) and Airworthiness Bulletin AWB 02-003 Issue 2, are ambiguous regarding required inspection intervals for Private category aircraft airframe items. This may result in the items being operated past the specified aircraft manufacturer's inspection interval.
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Civil Aviation Safety Authority review Civil Aviation Advisory Publication (CAAP) 42B-1(0) and Airworthiness Bulletin AWB 02-003 Issue 2, in order to clearly define the required inspection intervals affecting Private category aircraft airframe items.
|Date issued:||13 March 2008|
|Response from:||Civil Aviation Safety Authority|
|Action status:||Closed - Accepted|
CASA has no objection to the safety issue at 4.2.2 in the draft report and the recommendation. CASA is aware that this is an area that requires clarification and will pursue this further now that the final report has been released.
