Safety Issue

Compliance with the APF Jump Pilot's Handbook & Aircraft Operation Procedures Manual was understood by the APF to not be mandatory for members of the federation. However, it appeared that the manual could be considered an applicable manual in accordance with the schedule. The clarification of the intent of Schedule A has the potential to mandate the adoption of the APF Jump Pilot's Handbook & Aircraft Operation Procedures Manual by APF members. In turn, that would enhance the safety and efficiency of APF members' parachuting operations.

Safety Recommendation

The Australian Transport Safety Bureau recommends that the Australian Parachute Federation (APF) clarify with the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) the intent of Schedule A of the Deed of Agreement between the APF and CASA as it affects compliance by APF members with APF documentation.
