Hi everyone,

I am due to sit the PPL(A) exam soon, and have just purchased a set of CAOs and CARs. Despite the cardiac arrest I nearly suffered when I saw the box and the extent of them, I am not lost as to how to index them, catalogue them, and basically how to find stuff in them.

For example, if there is a question on passenger limits, I might have an idea of where to find it, but is there an easy catalogue, contents page, or index I could possible refer to? and maybe take into the exam?

Cheers, Pally

There is no index permitted in the exam unfortunately. However, we have out together a PPL air law supplement which you can take in if you print it out and bind it.
www.bobtait.com.au/files/pdf/supplements...-Air-Law-Extract.pdf

As for navigating the original documents, check out this post for some info on the CAOs:
www.bobtait.com.au/forum/air-law/4075-fi...topics-in-cao-s#5306

Also, for the CARs you can use this mud-map:
  • CAR Regulations 1 to 61 - relate to definitions, maintenance and airworthiness and are in volume 1
  • CAR 5.xx - moved to the CASR 61.xxx and relate to medical and licensing.
  • CAR 77-343 - Rules of the air etc and this is volume 3.

We don't worry about anything else except Schedule 8 in Volume 4 (permitted maintenance). Don't forget the VFRG from CASA. It is a little dated but it is still a vital air law reference for the PPL exam once you print it out and bind it. No tabbing is permitted in it but highlighting is OK. It has a fabulous Table of contents, index and glossary of terms and abbreviations.

You can find it here:
www.casa.gov.au/scripts/nc.dll?WCMS:STANDARD::pc=PC_90008

Please let me know if that Air Law supplement helps you out. Remember, it must be bound and although highlighting is OK, tabbing is NOT permitted in this supplement either.

Cheers,

Rich

Hi Rich,

Thank you. The supplement is very helpful, and I guess it would have been more helpful had I had taken it to the exam (which was two weeks ago now). I ended up buying the complete set of CAO/CARs etc. They definitely were needed, but would have been better off with this supplement. Will have to look to try and sell those volumes now

Needless to say, I passed with a very pleasing score (88%).

Thanks again for your help. I love this forum, and hope that I can continue to read, learn and contribute in the years ahead.

cheers, Pally

Congrats on the pass Pally!
I am glad to hear you are enjoying the forums and please feel free to contribute - stories in the "Hangar Talk" sub-forum are always welcome. There are a lot of students working there way towards the magical PPL or CPL licence and they will undoubtedly love to hear how it's going for you.

Happy flying and soft landings always.

Cheers,

Hi,

Is this document still current and are we still allowed to take it in to the exam?

G'day ssy
Yes the extract is still current and can be used in the exam as long as you follow CASA's rules on permitted materials in the exam
