The Aero Club has created a Member Support Initiative to assist active Aero Club members in their Recreational License and ATF applications to the CAA.
The Aero Club will assist members to collect documents, provide a function of validating completeness of an application and submissions to the CAA on the members behalf. The Cost for this service is R300 per submission and/or R150.00 for a courier service.
HOW TO… SUBMIT AN APPLICATION
