They will then correctly align with the answers.

ATPL Flight Rules & Air Law – CASR Part 61

CASR 1998 Part 61 introduced changes to flight crew licensing in Australia.
This is an interim advice for our customers until we can produce a new edition of our book.
Apologies – but we are struggling to cope.

IFG (2016 PAGE 34/2017 PAGE 40) CARRIAGE OF PASSENGERS AT NIGHT

It has come to our attention that there is a mis-print on IFG 2016 Page 34 (IFG 2017 Page 40) of the IFG, regarding the recency requirements for the carriage of passengers at night.
The IFG incorrectly states that the pilot must have completed 3 take-offs and landing within the previous 90 days, by day or night. This should read conducted at night. The actual regulation states as follows:.

61.395  LIMITATIONS ON EXERCISE OF PRIVILEGES OF PILOT LICENCES – RECENT EXPERIENCE FOR CERTAIN PASSENGER FLIGHT ACTIVITIES

(1)  The holder of a pilot licence is authorised to pilot, during take-off or landing, an aircraft of a particular category carrying a passenger by day only if the holder has, within the previous 90 days, in an aircraft of that category or an approved flight simulator for the purpose, conducted, by day or night:
(a)  at least 3 take-offs; and
(b)  at least 3 landings;
while controlling the aircraft or flight simulator.

(2)  The holder of a pilot licence is authorised to pilot, during take-off or landing, an aircraft of a particular category carrying a passenger at night only if the holder has, within the previous 90 days, in an aircraft of that category or an approved flight simulator for the purpose, conducted, at night:
(a)  at least 3 take-offs; and
(b)  at least 3 landings;
while controlling the aircraft or flight simulator.

(3)  For paragraphs (1)(a) and (2)(a), each take-off must be followed by a climb to at least 500 ft AGL.

Corrigendum to our Instrument Rating book

As a result of the progressive retirement of fixed-base navigation aids, there have been changes to the aeroplane’s required instrument fitment for IFR as reflected by the amended AIP GEN.
This download will replace the previous extract and will be incorporated in the next edition of the IR book and will become figs 8-2,3 & 4.

Please also refer to the AIP.
