The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA), finalised the fatigue rules and incorporated 24 recommendations after an independent review and industry consultation in 2019. The original timeline was to implement these in a staged roll out in late 2019 and 2020, however, due to COVID-19 , CASA have extended the transition dates by a further 12 months taking this to 1 July 2021.

$41 Million Regional Airport Investment

60 regional Australian airports will see a $41.2 million investment from the Federal Government to boost the Aviation Industry through the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The effects of the Coronvirus have seen a huge downturn on the entire aviation sector due to the travel restrictions placed both interstate and Australia wide. Projects, such as this Regional Airport Investment, show the importance of the industry from the Australian Government perspective to ensure the sector comes out the other side of this crisis ready and able to continue.

This investment is the first stage of a $100 million Regional Airports Program. The approved project are aimed at allowing owners to carry out essential works, such as runway and taxi upgrades, as well as to promote aviation safety.

Michael McCormack, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, said “ The Government is investing in regional airports because we know this infrastructure is key to securing our regional aviation network now and into the post-COVID future.”

West Australian projects approved include:

  • $1.6 million for re-surfacing works at Albany Airport
  • $70,000 for Runway Surface Renewal at Geraldton Airport
  • $39,950 for Jurian Bay Airfield to build a new taxiway

Taking this time to make improvements and prepare for the return to normal after travel restrictions ease, is something the Australian Airports Association (AAA) and the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) are keen to focus on.

In anticipation of a return to normal operations now is the perfect time to look at your own compliance and business efficiency so that you are ready to get back to business once the restrictions are lifted. If you need assistance with auditing, efficiency improvement or to enhance your scope of approval you can give us a call and our friendly team will assist you.
