Initial Challenge


Sub
-
committee tasked with investigating the
following:


The requirement to operate an autonomous, unmanned,
aerial vehicle between the restricted airspace of a
military range and its operating air base 150kms away.
Flights shall be under IFR Rules via controlled Group G
airspace under the current Military and Civil Technical
and Operational Airworthiness Regulations.



Q. If this is not possible or, is too bureaucratic, what
changes are needed to be able to operate in this
environment with the freedom of notification of a normal
IFR aircraft?

Outcomes






Paper submitted to CASA CEO July 2010
covering the following areas:


Airworthiness Framework for Small UAS


Operational Concepts for Routine Operations in
Class G Airspace


Definition of Populous Areas in Australia


Training Standards for UAS operators

UAS Paper

Ageing Aircraft Project


AAIF acknowledges the concerns of CASA in
regard to the ageing aircraft population in Australia
and is encouraging its members, and industry
generally, to participate in this project.



AAIF stands willing to support this project, through
its working groups if invited to do so.




How Can we Help?


Some issues we think may need
addressing:



New Schedule 4/5 maintenance programs for certain
classes.


Insurance Issues.

How Can we Help?



Capacity of CAR30 Organisations to cope with
modifications and increased inspections.



Availability of Replacement Aircraft.



LAME/AME Training Programs.



Crash Protection/Design Margins


Removal/ Tightening
of Grandfathering of Certification Baselines.

CRC for Aerospace?


Monash University (Prof Rhys Jones)


All States to be involved (Government and
Academe)


NZ involved (ANZ and NZ Uni)


CASA/ADF involved


Industry to be invited to support.


Possibly up to five technology streams to be
supported.

Summary


AAIF is useful as a vehicle for industry, academe,
research and government instrumentalities to work
collaboratively to the benefit of the aerospace
industry.



We are all capable of taking off our commercial
and bureaucratic hats and acting as a single body
to benefit the Nation.


Summary



All CEOs and General Managers have contributed
willingly and have supported the outcomes.



Government support sustained across two (and
now three) major parliamentary changes.
