CIVIL AVIATION SAFETY REGULATIONS 1998 - REG 61.375

Limitations on exercise of privileges of pilot licences--ratings

             (1)  This regulation applies to the holder of a pilot licence.

             (2)  The holder is authorised to exercise the privileges of the licence in an aircraft of a particular category only if the holder also holds, as the associated aircraft category rating for the licence, the aircraft category rating for that category of aircraft.

Note:          An aircraft category rating has effect only in conjunction with the licence for which it is granted. It does not authorise the exercise, in the aircraft category covered by the rating, of the privileges of any other licence held by the holder of the rating: see the definition of associated in regulation 61.010.

             (3)  The holder is authorised to exercise the privileges of the licence in an aircraft, other than an aircraft mentioned in subregulation (5), only if the holder also holds an appropriate aircraft class rating for the aircraft.

             (4)  For subregulation (3), either of the following is an appropriate aircraft class rating for an aeroplane in the single-engine aeroplane class:

                     (a)  the single-engine aeroplane class rating;

                     (b)  the multi-engine aeroplane class rating.

             (5)  The holder is authorised to exercise the privileges of the licence in:

                     (a)  a multi-crew aircraft; or

                     (b)  an aircraft:

                              (i)  that is certificated for single-pilot operation; and

                             (ii)  for which a single-pilot type rating is required by a legislative instrument under regulation 61.060;

only if the holder also holds the appropriate pilot type rating for the aircraft type.

             (6)  However, the holder is not required to hold the pilot type rating for the aircraft if:

                     (a)  the person is acting as a cruise relief co-pilot for the aircraft; and

                     (b)  the person holds a cruise relief co-pilot type rating for the aircraft type.

             (7)  The holder is authorised to conduct an activity mentioned in column 1 of an item in table 61.375 in the exercise of the privileges of the licence only if the holder also holds the rating mentioned in column 2 of the item.

             (8)  However:

                     (a)  the holder of a multi-crew pilot licence with an aeroplane category rating is authorised, without holding an instrument rating, to pilot an aeroplane in a multi-crew operation:

                              (i)  under the IFR; or

                             (ii)  at night under the VFR; and

                     (b)  the holder of an air transport pilot licence with an aeroplane category rating is authorised, without holding an instrument rating, to pilot an aeroplane:

                              (i)  under the IFR; or

                             (ii)  at night under the VFR; and

                     (c)  the holder of an air transport pilot licence with a powered-lift category rating is authorised, without holding an instrument rating, to pilot a powered-lift aircraft:

                              (i)  under the IFR; or

                             (ii)  at night under the VFR.
