The problem for RAA pilots flying under the CAO 95.55 is that any breach of a condition of the CAO, including a failure to comply with the Operations or Technical Manuals, means the exemption under the CARs granted to them no longer apply. This opens them to a plethora of charges that have nothing to do with the substantive offence.


3 Exemptions under regulation 11.160

3.1 If the conditions set out in this Order are complied with, in relation to an aeroplane to which this Order applies, the aeroplane is exempt from compliance with the following provisions of CAR 1988.....

This seems quite brutal to me as the law becomes a scattergun blasting away at everything rather than neatly drilling the target.
