Description

This qualification was aligned with the proposed Civil Aviation Safety Regulation (CASR) Part 66 Manual of Standards (MOS) that was to introduce a new small aircraft licensing system In July 2016. However, CASA decided to hold the revised MOS pending a full review of CASR Part 66 which is intended to take about two years to complete. Until CASA decides on the final form of small aircraft licensing it will not be possible to use this qualification as a pathway to grant of licence.

Until the CASA review is finalised the qualification can be used for small aircraft maintenance apprenticeships and will provide most of the knowledge required for the Basic Examinations which will continue to be the avenue to licensing for small aircraft maintenance.

The qualification applies to individuals involved in the maintenance of small aircraft within the General Aviation industry sector and is not a pathway to the grant of a B1 or B2 Licence for regular public transport aircraft maintained by a Civil Aviation Safety Regulation (CASR) Part 145 Maintenance Repair Organisation (MRO). The pathways to these licences are the MEA50218 Diploma of Aeroskills (Mechanical) for the B1 or the MEA50118 Diploma of Aeroskills (Avionics) for the B2. A number of units in this qualification would provide credits towards those qualifications and towards other qualifications at Certificate IV, Diploma and Advanced Diploma levels.

More information regarding the operation of the MEA Aeroskills Training Package in licence-related areas during the CASR Part 66 review can be found in the Companion Volume –Interface with CASA Licensing Requirements.
