CASA: Pilots To Benefit From Better Security Processing
The Civil Aviation
Safety Authority tells ANN that it is making a range of
improvements to the systems being used to issue pilots with
Aviation Security Identification Cards. The improvements will help
to speed up the time it takes for ASIC applications to be processed
by CASA and security agencies.
CASA will also be sending pilots a letter acknowledging ASIC
applications have been received and advising how they can collect
their card when it is issued. The acknowledgement letter will help
pilots who are eligible for the extension of time the Federal
Government has announced for some ASIC applications.
Transport and Regional Services Minister Warren Truss has
approved a new deadline of 31 March 2006 for pilots who need ASICs
for regional aerodromes. The extended ASIC deadline only applies to
pilots who operate at 141 regional aerodromes that have only
recently been included in the security program.
The 28 larger
aerodromes that were part of the security program prior to March
2005, plus 10 additional aerodromes, still have an ASIC requirement
deadline of 31 December 2005.
Pilots without an ASIC cannot access security controlled areas
of these aerodromes after the end of this year. Pilots without an
ASIC operating at the 141 regional aerodromes will not be able to
access security controlled areas where regular public transport
flights are operating after 31 March 2006. For pilots who do not
wish to operate at any security controlled aerodromes there are
still security requirements.
These pilots do not need an ASIC, but they must still apply for
a background security check before 31 December 2005. They will be
issued with an Aviation Identification Card (AVID), subject to
successful security checking.
