The Defence Airworthiness Safety Regulations (DASR) will include DASR 66 - Military Aircraft Maintenance Licensing permits Defence personnel who hold a Military Aircraft Maintenance License (MAML) to issue Certificates of Release to Service. This regulation is based on the European Military Airworthiness Requirement Part 66 (EMAR Pt 66), but adapted to suit the Australian military maintenance environment.
Courses for DASR training are located on the DASA Training Page.
To enable the MAML holder to issue a CRS, the licence must have a specific Aircraft Type rating and the holder must be authorised by the Quality Manager to operate within their approved quality system. In order to obtain a Type rating, an applicant needs:
The Category A licence is a non-type rated licence and the privileges of a Category A licence are not applicable to Base maintenance.
The Category B1 and B2 licences are aircraft type-rated licences and permit the holder to certify the release to service only of aircraft types that are endorsed as ratings on their licence.
The Category C licence is an aircraft type-rated licence and permits the holder to issue the certificate of release to service of an aircraft following Base maintenance.
