Explanatory note

This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.

These regulations, which come into force on 11 July 1997, amend the Civil Aviation Charges Regulations (No 2) 1991.

Regulation 2 amends the definition of the terms gross weight or MCTOW. The change is necessary to align the definition with the Civil Aviation Rules.

Regulation 3 amends regulation 16(2) of the principal regulations to align the regulation with terminology in the Civil Aviation Rules.

Regulation 4 reduces from $5 to $4 the security charge payable by an aerodrome operator for each international civil air passenger leaving New Zealand from that aerodrome.

Regulation 5 amends the Schedule of fees and charges in the principal regulations. Subclause (1) revokes and replaces Section A of the Schedule, which sets out the fees and charges relating to personnel licensing. Some of the fees are increased and some are decreased. The categories of fees have been reorganised to align with the Civil Aviation Rules. There are some new fees.

Subclauses (2), (3), and (4) amend the Schedule to align terminology with the Civil Aviation Rules.

Subclause (5) revokes and replaces Section I of the Schedule, which sets out miscellaneous fees and charges. The following 3 new categories of charge have been added:

  • (a) A charge per hour for any aeronautical study or safety review conducted for the purposes of the Civil Aviation Rules:

  • (b) A charge per hour for any aeronautical study conducted to determine whether the proposed construction or alteration of a structure, or any other proposed activity, could constitute a hazard in navigable airspace:

  • (c) A charge per hour for inspections or monitoring carried out under section 15 of the Civil Aviation Act 1990 for which a specific charge is not otherwise prescribed.
