CASA has announced a range of exemptions have been put in place to help the Australian aviation industry during the COVID-19 crisis.

Students have been experiencing difficulties booking and sitting pilot and aircraft maintenance engineering exams including Commercial Pilots Licence (CPL), Air Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) and Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (AME) examinations.

CASA will allow a six month extension of the statutory time period for CPL and ATPL in which students can complete exams, and a 12 month extension to AME examinations (including Schedule Of Experience pathways).
