Running Out Of Time In Australia #AvMRO


If you're hoping to get an aircraft engineer license in Australia under the existing Civil Aviation Regulation (CAR) 31 system, you have a litte more than two years to do so. The deadline is June 26, 2015.

After that, applicants will need to get training from a Part 147 organization and meet the Part 66 license qualifications. The Australian Civil Aviation Safety System (CASA) will no longer conduction aircraft maintenance engineer basic exams or evaluate Schedules of Experience after the June 2015 date.

In June 2011, CASA announced that its maintenance licensing system would be replaced by EASA's. Here's a guide that explains how it will work.

CASA pointed out that the changes take effect two years from now--which might seem like a a long way off--but it only has limited limited spots to administer the exames, so you should make an appointment now if you intend to sit for the exam.
