2 December 2021 was a signifcant day for Australia’s aviation industry. That was when CASA
decided to enshrine the most notable change to this country’s aviation regulation since the postWWII period.

This book is titled the first revised edition of the CPL Law Book because it is likely the first of
many necessary revisions – the changes are too signifcant to ignore their effects over time, and
CASA must now implement what it produced.

That will not be easy, and we will inevitably see
additional changes to the new regulatory material in the short term and revised editions of this
book. Afer all, CAO 48.1 Instrument 2019 underwent many changes  
over many years before it reached its final form.

This first revised edition, then, is an attempt to incorporate changes we have recently learned
about and material we feel confdent to publish as of 30 June 2022. The changes are not many on
this occasion, but each change was noted and considered as we learned about or noticed it.

We are also trying to incorporate useful guidance material over time and identify and publish any

concerns about regulatory material and processes that become apparent
