Guide to the preparation of operations manuals References This CAAP should be read in conjunction with the Civil Aviation Regulations and Civil Aviation Orders. Purpose of this CAAP Civil Aviation Regulation 215 requires an operator to provide an operations manual for the use and guidance of the operations personnel of the operator. While there are many references in CARs and CAOs to what information must be included in an operations manual, not all of it is applicable to every operator. This publication provides the operator with a standardised framework within which to present that information essential to the conduct of his operations. While compliance with this CAAP is not mandatory, standardisation provides benefits to the operator in terms of ease of compilation and speed of assessment by CASA, and provides a readily recognisable document for use by operations personnel.
