It seems that there is no means supplied by #casa to track AOC changes or the information behind the AOC database.

This letter is from the #casa previous head of legal, Adam Anastasi.

Interesting to note that this person is now Manager Advisory and drafting Branch.

The request was:

In the past, AOC details included the aircraft types, training approvals etc. under the AOC
