CASA REGULATIONS – CAR 262 AM

The Civil Aviation Safety Authority requires all passengers to acknowledge CAR 262 AM which states: “The design, manufacture and Airworthiness of the Aircraft are not required to meet any standard recognised by CASA and CASA does not require the Aircraft to be operated to the same degree of safety as an Aircraft on a commercial passenger flight, and the passenger flies in the aircraft at his or her own risk”.

INDEMNITY

All Passengers will be required to sign an indemnity acknowledging that they have read and understand the following before they will be permitted to board an Aircraft:

  • CAR 262 AM
  • The Passenger acknowledges that they fly in the Aircraft at their own risk.

SAFETY BRIEF

For many years, aviation authorities banned any civilian operation of ex-military aircraft. After much representation by interested people, they recognized the fact that when properly maintained and flown, Warbirds are very safe, and they then permitted a limited role for these aircraft. Specific people in the aviation industry are permitted to train others in Warbird operations, and under certain circumstances permitted to take paying passengers. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and Australian Warbirds Association Limited require passengers to understand the following:

(a)  the design, manufacture, and airworthiness of the aircraft are not required to meet any standard recognised by CASA; and

(b)  CASA does not require the aircraft to be operated to the same degree of safety as an aircraft on a commercial passenger flight; and

(c)  the passenger flies in the aircraft at his or her own risk.

By virtue of the fact that these aircraft are extremely valuable, they are maintained and flown to very high standards usually by their owners, and have excellent safety records. Because of the widely different design philosophy of military aircraft, they are not certified to any defined civilian standard, but flown under an exemption to normal standards. For this reason, you will see in the cockpit of a passenger carrying Warbird a notice to this effect. This does not mean they are unsafe, just that civilian aviation certification rules were not written for this type of aircraft, and you, as the passenger, should be aware of this.
