An organisation’s exposition details which 059 version is applicable
1. Training aids are items of technical equipment, including aircraft, simulators and aeronautical product, which are specifically used as aids for the ground training of ADF personnel. Training aids exclude operational and flight training aircraft and other ADF operational systems. General workshop equipment and non-technical classroom equipment used to support training is also excluded.
2. Training aids are obtained from various sources, including:
3. This chapter prescribes the Approved Maintenance Organisation procedures to be followed when maintaining technical equipment used as training aids.
TRAINING AIDS CLASSIFICATION
4. Training aids are classified as:
5. Directorate General Technical Airworthiness (DGTA–ADF) retains the engineering authority for current aircraft and approved aeronautical product. Training authorities are responsible for ensuring that engineering, maintenance and logistics plans are formulated and managed for training aids that fall outside the Technical Airworthiness Regulators (TAR) regulatory framework. ADF training authorities are as follows:
MAINTENANCE POLICY FOR TRAINING AIDS
Operational and Maintenance Training Simulators
6. The maintenance policy for operational simulator equipment is to be promulgated by the responsible System Project Office (SPO) in a specific TMP for the simulator. The maintenance policy for maintenance training simulators will be promulgated by the responsible SPO in either a TMP or in an SPO approved instruction.
Information specific to the operation and maintenance of Navy Flight Simulators and Aircrew Training Devices is contained within the Simulator Operating Procedures (SIMOPS) Manual, Document Number 9193 available from: Air Warfare Systems Centre (AWSC), HMAS Albatross, NOWRA NSW 2540

9. Miscellaneous equipment purchased, manufactured, developed or adapted for use as training aids will not normally be provided with logistic support. Requests for spares, or maintenance beyond the capability or capacity of the training agency are to be directed to the responsible training authority for approval. Miscellaneous equipment is to be marked with the words ‘For Training Purposes Only’.
Aircraft Engines and Auxiliary Power Units
10. Additional guidelines and procedures applicable to engineering and maintenance management of aircraft engines and Auxiliary Power Units allotted for use as training aids are detailed in Annex A.
Safety Requirements Applicable to Technical Training Aids
11. Safety requirements applicable to technical training aids are consistent with those in practice throughout the ADF. COs/OCs are to ensure that authorised maintenance data are available to users, as published in AAPs, NAPs, ABRs, TMPs, local instructions and Defence Documents. When safety requirements are not addressed by the publications and instructions are unavailable, the agency is to seek assistance from the responsible SPO, FEG or the base Health and Safety representative (HSR) as applicable.
