Whaaaaat! there you go, CASA cant even use the AIP's without tags. We should all give this guy a call and see if he can answer our questions!

Are we allowed to use the CAR dividers still? Since they come with them?

Don't join them, beat them.

I posted this on another thread (ATPL Flight Planning Tips and Tricks):

Hmmm, you've got 15 minutes of practice exam time. Maybe use this time to rip up one of your five supplied pieces of scrap paper to make some book marks to act as tags.

Highlight the corners of the appropriate pages (those which would otherwise be tagged) a certain colour before sitting then put page markers there. I think it's a ridiculous change in rules, at least for ATPL Flight Planning.

I'm sitting the CPL Air Law this week and just want to confirm that highlighting in the CAR, CAO and AIP are still permissible.

Can anyone set me straight here so I can start painting my books?

Not being able to tag the B727 book for flight planning, now that will be tough, the exam was difficult and time consuming enough as it is. Maybe CASA will extend the length of the exam to help...(what's that I hear you say....BULLS#$T, yeah, who are we kidding.)
It would be good if they could extend it just for the reason that the exam time seems really compressed. They give you plenty of time for Systems, I can't see why they can't extend FP by at least 30 minutes.

Give Casa a break. They are 'of the times' and modern in their approach.

Flight planning and performance exams are based around that new model jet from Boeing, I think it's called the 727. They chose that new model plane because there's a good chance we'll be driving one if we get a job at Ansett.

That flight planning exam 727 poh is brilliantly structured to find the information you need in an instant....

Thank goodness I'm done...

I can't believe we aren't allowed a few tags in our CAO. Does that thing even have an index?!?!? If there is one, i cant find it!

In the AFT notes, they provided an IanKatan Air Law Index.I read somewhere "Casa does not permit any index to be used in the actual examination, apart from an index which may be included in a casa document such as CARS". Everyone i've spoken to was under the impression that you were allowed your own index, and had all taken their own in on previous exams. Does anyone know what the go is????

I suppose you will be pissed to find out I passed the IREX after 3 days study with a Bob Tait theory book and an AIP that was self tagged

Our rules are probably a little daunting when you are used to a much more practical system of regulation than what exists in Australia.

The biggest tip I have for Airlaw and Irex is rather than finding the right answer, rule all the others out

I've got some 10x5cm post it notes. Are there any rules about sticking them at the beginning of sections and indexing them?

Print-outs are fine, but buy a set of AIP or Jepp - you're crazy if you don't have your own set.

I'm sitting ATPL law next week and wondering whether anyone had any useful tips?

I'm quite happy getting around my AIP and ERSA and tracking stuff down there, but how the hell does one find something in the CARs and CAO without any tags?

I find the whole rule comical, especially given the amount of different (and often contradictory) law volumes we have, but I guess it's just another hoop we have to jump through.
