How to Navigate the Airworthiness Directive Amendment Schedule

The CAA offers a FREE notification service that will send you an email alerting you to some changes relating to rules, airspace, and airworthiness. This is provided as a helpful aid – you should not rely on any such service for compliance – email is too unreliable for that.

To order printed copies of Airworthiness Directives, call free 0800 GET RULES (0800 438 785), or order online, www.vertia.co.nz, or email info@vertia.co.nz.

List of Airworthiness Directives issued and amended in the last 15 months by the CAA of NZ

This list has been collated from the monthly Airworthiness Directive Amendment Schedule. Each month it will be updated, and the oldest month will be deleted.

The list is provided at the request of Inspection Authorisation (IAs) for use when they are completing ARAs. Others may also find it useful, eg those carrying out a Maintenance Review.

The list should not be used as a substitute for checking the monthly Airworthiness Directive Amendment Schedule. Owners and operators should be checking the Airworthiness Directive Amendment Schedule on a monthly basis to ensure that their aircraft is in compliance with all relevant Airworthiness Directives. The easiest way of doing this is to subscribe to the Airworthiness Directive notification service.

If you have any suggestions about improving the format or layout of the list please email info@caa.govt.nz
