There have been ongoing changes to the regulations regarding student pilots and to the BAK/RPL syllabus.
The former are contained in CASR 1998 Part 61 and the syllabus changes in the Manual of Standards.
Please refer to the CASR itself for licensing requirements and limitations.
Other than minor details, we believe the current edition of the BAK satisfies or exceeds the syllabus requirements.
The next edition of BAK (4th Edition) which is in preparation and will be available in the new year, will automatically incorporate changes that are known at this time.
