Status: Open
Recommendation Date: 
25 February 2016
Recipient Name: 
CAA
Text:
The Commission recommended to the Director of Civil Aviation that he include the knowledge and training requirements of Special Federal Aviation Regulation No. 73, or an equivalent requirement, as a prerequisite for the issue of a Robinson R66 type rating.
Reply Text:
On the basis that the FAA has twice rejected the inclusion of the Robinson R66 model in SFAR 73, the Director will not implement the recommendation, but will continue to monitor advice from Robinson Helicopters and the FAA with respect to the operation of R66 helicopters.
