3          Application
       3.1     This instrument applies for the carrying out of maintenance on a WHR.
Note   The instrument contains directions and conditions variously addressed to COA holders their employees, and independent engineers.
       3.2     This instrument does not affect the operation of regulation 42G of CAR 1988.
Note   Regulation 42G of CAR 1988 concerns who may be qualified as an “appropriate person” to conduct the independent inspection required when an aircraft flight control system is assembled, adjusted, repaired, modified or replaced in the course of maintenance on the aircraft.
       3.3     Subject to section 7, this instrument does not affect the operation of paragraph 42ZC (4) (b) of CAR 1988 in respect of a class B aircraft.
Note   Paragraph 42ZC (4) (b) of CAR 1988 concerns maintenance on a class B aircraft (other than as mentioned in Schedule 7 of CAR 1988) carried out by an independent engineer not engaged by a COA holder, or carried out by a person employed by such an engineer.
       3.4     This instrument does not affect the operation of paragraph 42ZC (4) (d) of CAR 1988 in respect of a WHR.
Note    Paragraph 42ZC (4) (d) of CAR 1988 concerns maintenance, specified in Schedule 8 of CAR 1988, that may be carried out by a pilot on a class B aircraft. A WHR is a class B aircraft.
       3.5     This instrument does not affect a category B1 licence holder, or a category B2 licence holder, who is authorised to carry out the maintenance mentioned in Schedule 8 of CAR 1988.
Note   Under instrument CASA 155/11, for paragraph 42ZC (4) (e) of CAR 1988, each subcategory B1 licence holder, or category B2 licence holder, is authorised to carry out the maintenance mentioned in Schedule 8 of CAR 1988 on any class B aircraft, including a WHR.
       3.6     To avoid doubt, this instrument does not affect anything done for or under Part 145 of CASR 1998.
4          Direction for Part 1 WHR — COA holders and WHR maintenance
       4.1     A COA holder may only carry out Part 1 WHR maintenance if the maintenance is carried out by:
(a)   a trained WHR employee of the COA holder who holds a Part 1 WHR licence for the WHR and who holds a current certification authorisation; or
(b)   an employed authority or type rating holder who holds a current certification authorisation.
       4.2     Subject to section 7, a person may not carry Part 1 WHR maintenance unless:
(a)   the maintenance is carried out under a COA holder; and
(b)   the person is:
             (i)  a trained WHR employee of the COA holder who holds a Part 1 WHR licence for the WHR and who holds a current certification authorisation; or
            (ii)  an employed authority or type rating holder who holds a current certification authorisation.
5          Direction for Part 2 WHR — COA holders and WHR maintenance
       5.1     A COA holder may only carry out Part 2 WHR maintenance if the maintenance is carried out by:
(a)   a WHR employee of the COA holder who holds Part 2 WHR licence for the WHR (whether or not a trained WHR employee or the holder of a current certification authorisation); or
(b)   an employed authority or type rating holder (whether or not the holder of a current certification authorisation).
       5.2     Subject to section 7, a person may not carry out Part 2 WHR maintenance unless:
(a)   the maintenance is carried out under a COA holder; and
(b)   the person is:
             (i)  a WHR employee of the COA holder who holds a Part 2 WHR licence (whether or not a trained WHR employee or the holder of a current certification authorisation); or
            (ii)  an employed authority or type rating holder (whether or not the holder of a current certification authorisation).
Note   Section 5 is consistent with the current privileges of a COA holder, an employed licence holder, and an employed authority or type rating holder under CAR 1988 for Part 2 WHR maintenance. It is included in the Direction both for completeness and in anticipation of regulatory amendments which, in due course, will similarly codify the requirements for WHR.
6          Direction for other WHR — COA holders and WHR maintenance
       6.1     For an unlisted WHR, a COA holder may only carry out maintenance on the WHR as if it were Part 1 WHR maintenance and subsection 4.1 applied to the holder for the WHR.
Note   Over time, where, on the basis of analysis and experience, CASA is satisfied that it is safe to do so, CASA may amend this Direction by adding other WHR to Part 1 or Part 2 of the table in Schedule 1.
       6.2     Subject to section 7, for an unlisted WHR, a person may only carry out maintenance on the WHR as if it were Part 1 WHR maintenance and subsection 4.2 applied to the person for the WHR.
       6.3     For subsection 6.1 and 6.2, a WHR with an airframe mentioned in column 1 of Part 2 of the table in Appendix 3 whose piston engine type has been modified to be a turbine engine type, is deemed to be an unlisted WHR.
7          Condition — on AEL or authority of independent engineer
            For subregulation 11.068 (1) of CASR 1998, it is a condition on the AEL, or the airworthiness authority or the aircraft welding authority of an independent engineer that, for Part 1 WHR maintenance, he or she may only perform maintenance certification for unscheduled maintenance that is not maintenance mentioned in Schedule 7 of CAR 1988.
Note 1   An independent engineer may perform maintenance certification for maintenance, or carry out aircraft maintenance or welding (as the case may be) on a class B aircraft (including a WHR mentioned in Part 2 of the table in Schedule 1) under paragraph 42ZC (4) (b) of CAR 1988. However, for a WHR mentioned in Part 1 of Schedule 1, he or she is restricted by this condition to performing maintenance certification, or carrying out aircraft maintenance or welding for unscheduled maintenance only.
Note 2   Under instrument CASA 155/11, for paragraph 42ZC (4) (e) of CAR 1988, each subcategory B1 licence holder, or category B2 licence holder, is authorised to carry out the maintenance mentioned in Schedule 8 of CAR 1988 on any class B aircraft, including a WHR.
Schedule 1 — WHR
Part 1
Part 1 — for an employed authority or type rating holder and a trained WHR employee – certification required
Note 1   Only an employed authority or type rating holder or a trained WHR employee, issued with a certification authorisation, may carry out maintenance on these aircraft.
Note 2   The “Suggested identification for a certification authorisation” (if any) mentioned in column 3 of the tables in Appendix 3 refers to a suggested means of identifying certification authorisations for Civil Aviation Order 104.0. It is included here for information only.
