Aero Club Communique July 2020 # 3
Status on GA / RA flight operations in Level 3 - Phase 2 - Update
It is now just over 2 weeks after having the proficiency flight process implemented and are standing at around 3000 flight applications made, so far good use has been made of this, especially in perfect weather conditions in the latter part of last week and weekend. As indicated in the last communique we have been working with the CAA on further practical concessions, and as per the link below is the General Notice update that has extended our operations to enable refueling stops during proficiency flights, as well as being able to hold events related to our sport / recreation given that there is a suitable Standard Operation Procedure (SOP) defined. This will be applicable to Aviation Recreation Organisations (AROs) and the normal event notification documentation will also be applicable for submission to the CAA.

As also reported in the last communique on ATF frustrations and delays, and your inputs to your sections on issues you have experienced, we have as the Aero Club collated this information and submitted a letter to the CAA for them to review last Friday. The CAA have in the interim also recognised these issues and have made work of solving them, and also released a Communication in this regard over the last weekend - see link below, with contact details to assist is solving issues. We have seen in the mean time in the last week work being done at the CAA to improve the service in this regard. Will keep you posted on further developments.
These continue to be trying times, spare a moment when you can to renew your membership if not yet done so, we need the funds to support our Recreational Aviation freedom.
