Re: [skydog] New Zealand implements CAR part 115 regulation.

In reply to:
Does this mean that if the DZ's call a tandem the first part of a training course then they do not have to comply? As it is part of a structured progression system like the UK's TAFF system.?

I believe so, though I imagine you would not be able to palm off a 2 minute briefing as a 'training course'.

A briefing is a 'breif'ing, and a training course is a training course. The whole jump master/instructor definition would also come into play there.

TAFF will not be subjected to part 115 regulations I believe. AFF is not, neither is sport jumping or even filming tandems as an outside cameraman.

There may be a loophole there but I would not like to be trying it on for size if the majority of your business is Tandems. The CAA will be looking very closely at everyone over the next 6 months.

Our company is not yet a training organisation, though I am working on that so it is part 115 all the way.

I am relieved we are through the hard work and will likely have a certificate by the end of the month. We have been given the go ahead to operate come the 1st regardless.

Some DZ's are not so fortunate.
