Civil Aviation Rule Exemptions
The Director of Civil Aviation has granted the following exemptions from Civil Aviation Rules:
Annual Review of Airworthiness (ARA)
Gliders used privately (non-training and/or non-hire or reward) need a Review of Airworthiness every two years instead of annually. See the formal exemption certificate 14/EXE/27.
Duplicate inspection of glider controls after maintenance
The duplicate inspection of controls after maintenance (not normal rigging) may be carried out by a GNZ Engineer Approval holder or by a QGP. See the formal exemption certificate 14/EXE/28.
Weak-links for Aero-tow
Weak-link requirements for aero-tow have effectively been modernised to cater for low mass towing aircraft, such as microlights. See the formal exemption certificate 16/EXE/34.
The various minimum heights down to which aerobatics in a glider may be conducted are significantly lowered for GNZ members holding aerobatic ratings issued in accordance with GNZ AC 2-06 dated July 2016 . See the formal exemption certificate 16/EXE/15. For the AC, go to this page.
