             (1)  The flight test for a flight crew licence, rating or endorsement must be conducted in:

                     (a)  an aircraft or an approved flight simulator for the purpose; and

                     (b)  if the flight test is for a rating or endorsement that is limited to a particular category, class or type of aircraft:

                              (i)  an aircraft of that category, class or type; or

                             (ii)  an approved flight simulator for that category, class or type of aircraft that is appropriate for the flight test.

             (2)  However, the flight test for an aircraft class rating or type rating must not be conducted in an aircraft with a maximum certificated passenger seating capacity of more than 9 if:

                     (a)  there is an approved flight simulator for the flight test available in Australia; or

                     (b)  for a rating that applies only to an aircraft with a maximum certificated passenger seating capacity of more than 19 or a maximum certificated take-off weight of more than 8 618 kg--there is an approved flight simulator for the flight test available outside Australia.

             (3)  The flight test must be conducted by an examiner or the holder of an approval under regulation 61.040 to conduct the flight test (the Part 61 approval holder ) who is nominated by the applicant's training provider.

             (4)  However, at any time before the test begins, CASA may, by written notice to the training provider and, if the training provider has nominated an examiner or Part 61 approval holder to conduct the flight test, the examiner or Part 61 approval holder:

                     (a)  nominate a different examiner or Part 61 approval holder to conduct the flight test; or

                     (b)  require that CASA will conduct the flight test.

             (5)  In this regulation:

"available" , for a flight test, means able to be used for the flight test.
